African Wedding Possibilities: Can Indian Man Marry African Woman?


The answer is yes, but very, very unlikely. If you are Black/African-American/African etc., you NEED to get to know the family of an Indian man thoroughly before you become emotionally involved with him, if you are thinking in terms of a long term relationship and African Wedding. Even if an Indian man loves you more than life itself and he wants more than anything to marry you, he will probably need to get the approval of his family before he can marry you. 

And Indian families can be very, very unwelcoming of outsiders, including fellow Indians. Even if you are an Indian, the family of your boyfriend might refuse to let him marry you if you are from a different part of India, belonged to a diverse ethnic group, religion, different caste, or for any other number of reasons. You face a higher obstacle because you are not even an Indian. And that is very unlikely.In Indian culture, the family is everything.

What About Becoming Good Friends And Avoiding African Wedding?

 Back in college, I became excellent friends with one Indian guy ‘Anil’ who was part of our semester-long engineering project. ‘Anil’ had an African-American girlfriend ‘Sylvia,’ whom he loved dearly and wanted desperately to marry. ‘Anils’ parents, Mr. & Mrs. ‘Malhotra,’ we’re already looking for a ‘suitable girl’ for their son when they found out about ‘Sylvia’ after that all hell broke loose. a long story to a short one, the ‘Malhotras’ forced their son to give up ‘Sylvia’ and marry the ‘suitable girl’ they have found for him – or promptly disowned.

 This engineering project continued for a second semester with all members of the group. So I was often at ‘Anils’ home while we work on the project outside of class and compare notes. It soon became clear to me that ‘Anil’ was in a miserable marriage and took out his anger on his wife ‘Mala’ (Nirmala). I was often shocked by the shabby way ‘Anil’ treated his wife – the name-calling, the put-downs, etc. One time, ‘Anil’ even kicked ‘Mala’ right there in front of me. Finally, I felt compelled to say something.

While we were alone, I tried to sound conciliatory while I told ‘Anil’ that in their marriage, ‘Mala’ is every bit a victim as ‘Anil.’ He was forced to give up the woman that he loved, and be shoe-horned into an arranged marriage with a ‘stranger’ he couldn’t stand. It turned the once easy-going ‘Anil’ into a very nasty guy. African wedding is tough.
