Matrimony website for people in development sector

India Development Blog pointed this website Devnetmatrimony.org.

Website for social workers, development professionals, innovators to search marriage partners 

The website is developed by SynQues Consultancy, a Netherlands based firm which has India offices as well. The about us and other links are not working so we don’t have much idea on whether SynQues alone is responsible or others are as well.

It was pretty amusing at first but a much-needed solution to a big problem emerging in India. It is a useful market-making/market-design tool.

We have many websites catering to the various communities but people also want to marry people in their own fields. Quite a few these days don’t mind marrying outside their communities but want to ensure the person is from the same field.

The reason is that same field person understands the issues that come with the occupation- long hours, loads of travel etc. This was a common problem with doctors who mostly want to marry doctors only. You often see both husband and wife in one clinic, with husband offering some special doctor services and wife offering another. It could be same services as well.

Now you get to see the same issue moving to other professions as well.   The issue is all the more for girls. They are worried that they may have to give up their profession after marriage if the in-laws family does not understand the work ethics with a profession.

Take the case of development sector. It involves a lot of travel to far remote areas for many a days. One could also be in areas where he cannot communicate about his location and well-being.  Just imagine the situation for a married woman in this case. The salary may also not be as good compared to all the work one does. If the other half is understanding nothing like it. But if not, marriage to a non-development sector person, may turn out to be a bad one. But then marrying a dev sector person alone will not guarantee all will be well. It is just minimising risks that is it.

So, if you see the registration page, it asks for details like:

  • Experience in Development Sector
  • Organisational Category – has options like Govt, NGOs,  Volunteer org, UN, etc

So a person could select on this basis.

Likewise, all other professions have their own whims and fancies. I keep coming across this issue with many a relatives.  The parents are worried to fight a suitable match for their son or daughter. And most often they say my son/daughter refuses to marry saying the person will not understand my nature of work. 

I am sure most others would relate to this problem as well. It may not be a bad idea to have more websites like these or have one website which helps you search across professions.  So far, such match making usually happens offline – mostly at offices. Having an exclusive online option should help.

Market design is a very interesting field in economics, pioneered by Al Roth. Market design for marriages is a useful way to think about the issues involved.

    Al Roth has been instrumental in the general area of market design. But, and I would love to see more explanation here, marriage arrangements have typically been dominated by small brokers. For most western markets, marriage markets are thought to be repugnant – in Al Roth’s sense.

    Love to hear a history about the move from marriage markets and small brokers to marriage markets as repugnant transactions.

    If you watch a game, it’s fun. If you play it, it’s recreation. If you work at it, it’s golf.

    I think everything published made a lot of sense. But, what
    about this? suppose you typed a catchier title? I am not saying your information is not solid.,
    but what if you added something that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Matrimony website for people in development
    sector | Mostly Economics is a little vanilla. You might glance at
    Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create post titles to get viewers
    to click. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get readers excited about what you’ve got to
    say. Just my opinion, it could bring your posts
    a little livelier.
