    Money has nothing to do with any of the factors involved. I have known people 1000 times poorer than me leading normal happy lives. At some point people have to understand that money is not the be all and end all.
    The way the ratio is screwed is a matter of grave concern. It's a crime and goverment although has passed laws on that matter needs to do far more than what's its doing currently. I know few NGOs have taken the matter seriously. The govt needs to do more in changing the perception of the public. I would consider it to be more important than FDI in retail and aviation -- pun intended.
    The factor is all have arguments. It's not like I do not have any fights in the 8+ years (3 yrs friendship, 2 years of love, 1 yr courtship and 2 + yrs of marriage) I have known my wife for, but it's about handing things diplomatically. The disagreements are natural and could even be on what to have for dinner -- poori or pongal . I guess diplomatic solution is the only advice I would give to any couple facing this situation. On the larger scheme of things I would suggest the same to Iran and Israel.
    Also on how love marriage in mocked in our society. Even many of my friends, seniors and cousins advised me to concentrate on my career and not to waste my time on love affairs. Many are now 30+, so called successful (Consultant for BCG) and single. I recently met one such guy to see him buy a Louis Vutton laptop bag for 2 lakhs . I seriously don't get it. Why did he sacrifice all his life focusing on career just to earn a big fat salary and spend the money to purchase a trendy laptop bag.
    The social values we have incorporated which focuses purely on studies in early stages and lays more emphasis on a flashy visiting card, impressive resume and healthy bank balance above all else including the person that you are is a bad joke!
    Ok. Now I get it. So, its only 2 years of marriage! Given that at least 1 year is Honeymoon and maybe 1 year minimum as cooling period, your challenges lie ahead of you friend.

    In my case, it was the 2nd half of the 80s. We were from completely different religions (each from the priestly class which is the most fanatical about these things) she was (now veg for 23 years) totally non-veg (me, I'd only touched animals that still moved! So on ...

    3 years of refraining from marriage (after deciding to) to ensure that we bring both families in on it. Remember, back in the 1980s such things were still very rare, starting to come in slowly!

    We just celebrated our 23rd Anniversary a week ago!

    To keep it short, the most important advice ...

    - Always keep the other informed about your life-impacting choices as early as possible. Adjust at any cost to ensure that it still fits the other's core outlook and needs in life (otherwise, its downhill very rapidly after that!)

    - Be prepared for a gradual decline in the sparkle and magic (it happens to everyone), but thats like settling down over time in your favorite recliner ... in some areas the cushion adjusts to fit you, in others you adjust to fit he chair till both blend well ...

    - This is probably going to be your best time going forward (in general, childhood was the best time in our life, but we knew that only in college ... then college was the second-best time, but we got to know that only in our early career ... then our early career was the third bst period of our lives, but we got to know that only in middle-age ... you get the picture!

    Enjoy now like you are never going to get it again! Probably you won't!!!

    cheers

            After reading ur post, I feel like I have watched a biopic movie Altho many can derive this knowledge if they closely observe their parents!

            Main difference between previous generation and this generation, is that those days couples decided to stay with each other even if they dont fit in until the end, some due to matured understanding of each other and some just got accustomed to tolerating the partner!

            But nowadays due to the stressful work life and competition and ever increasing prices, bad quality of air/food/water all put together, Couples have been less tolerant to each other's mistakes however meaningless and small they are. The Adjustment Percentage has dipped from 90 % to 60 % may be. Just using imaginary numbers to show that it has dipped drastically.

            Also there is a lot of unnecessary pampering needed and every small thing is being taken too seriously. May be due to adoption of western life etc!

              The challenge you've today with couples are to manage work-life balance. Probably women work as hard, if not more to reach where they are on corporate ladder- throw-in lack of family support like in previous generation.

              WM- Probably my take is bit different, if you are living on an alien land. First 2 years are the most challenging - difference arises due to little understanding and strong identity overlapping. But things settle as we move forward- financial stability is one of the concern, not as big as it touted it to be.

                What I have noticed is that there are lot more girls who have feminist attitudes in Chennai. Nothing wrong in that, but it scares me sometimes especially when you have to live together with a person you do not know a lot. Around four months ago I got an invite from a Chennai based girl on Shaadi.com. She chatted for sometime and asked me to call. Man, that was the worst phone call I encountered, she was rude and not pleasant at all. After that I decided, no more Chennai girls. Not to stereotype but it seems there are some cases like that. I am sure there are crazy guys too.

                I do not see that from a bit older women, probably they understand the real world bit more. Same thing with younger girls too, they also seem fine. I have went out with few people and I have met a some nice folks, but unfortunately issues like location, etc come in between.

                  I wouldn't say it's cause for concern, if someone has strong identity. With mutual trust it will mellow down, but it will be like river rafting on early days .

                  Actually it will help in long run to share responsibilities on both front. Unless people have preference over home maker.

                    Don't write off Chennai girls so quickly.
                    There is little about Chennai(or any city for that matter) that can influence a girl's real character. It's always their friends,co-workers,family that is going to influence their attitude and habits. In my experience I've found Tamil and Telugu girls more conservative and rude(to talk to). North Indian girls are more pleasing to talk to. But, you have to see past that. Any body who lived in Coimbatore, will tell you how rude the people are in Chennai, but that doesn't make Coimbatore people better than Chennaites. When it comes to marriage you have to see past such pleasant/rudeness in talking, which is a challenge because they can be big turnoffs especially initially when you know nothing about the person and it's easier to dismiss with the multitude of options(matrimonial sites is a curse for this generation!).
