Marriage marks a palpable shift not only in the life of women, but also in the way they view their priorities. One of the examples is her career that moves down from first to fourth place after becoming a daughter-in-law, says a survey conducted by one of the leading matrimonial sites.
On the occasion of International Women's Day on March 8, Jeevansathi.com has done a survey to understand woman's priorities in life before and after marriage.
The survey was conducted on more than 1,500 women, who were asked to rank their priorities in life before matrimony and post wedding. Career and job were given number one spot with 53 percent of women putting it as their number one concern. The tables turned post the walk down the aisle with women ranking career as number four priority.
So when asked about priorities after marriage, 51 percent of women indicated their future partner as their number one priority, said a statement.
"The survey clearly shows a tangible shift in women's priorities before and after marriage and also throws light on the outlook of women towards their lives. Indian women have pristine clarity towards what they value most in life with career and husband becoming their top priorities before and after marriage," said Prakash Sangam, business head, Jeevansathi.com.
Also, 25 percent of women ranked their parents as the number two priority in their lives before marriage. But an equal number of women ranked their parents as number three priority after marriage since their own children take up the second place in the priority list.
Money featured on number three in their priority list before marriage, while post marriage it is filial duties that take precedence over monetary concerns.
The survey also says that post marriage, Indian women hardly spend time on their hobbies and travelling.
