In Indian culture we do have a hierarchal caste system, which is still prominent to this day, and while it’s true that there are Indian families who adopt a modern view on dating, my family fall into the old school category …which is where, for me, modern dating gets complicated.
Those Sikhs who are supportive of homosexuality believe that there is nothing unnatural about homosexuality and that it is perfectly normal for a minority of adults.Most Sikhs assume this means homosexuality, which cannot result in procreation, is unnatural and against God's will.Acceptance of God's will is seen as central in Sikhism, thus even if a Sikh is attracted exclusively to members of their own sex they are expected to accept God's will, which (in the eyes of the vast majority of Sikhs) is for them to procreate.She found someone through my parents, so you could label it an ‘arranged marriage’, which has many negative connotations around it.But honestly, these days it’s not like it use to be where you only could see your future partner once or twice before you gave a yes or no to marriage.Indian culture is based on respect, and girls especially, get it harder as they hold the honour for the family.
As my sister says: “Girls do get it harder with dating as if I mess up it will look bad on my family.
Many Sikhs who have homosexual desires will try to overcome what they believe is lust by marrying a member of the opposite sex and having children as they are expected to.
This has led to a belief among many Sikhs that there are no gay or lesbian Sikhs.
In the world of a British Indian we are closed books when it comes to dating.
Unless we are ready to take the next step of marriage, we usually have to be discreet about our relationships, due to the pressures that will come from our elders.
