Landmark research by University College London, the London School of Economics and The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine found that single women do not suffer the same negative health effects as unmarried men.
In fact, middle aged women who had never married had virtually the same chance of developing metabolic syndrome – a combination of diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity - as married women.(http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2016/03/14/marriage-is-more-beneficial-for-men-than-women-study-shows/) I guess that is so true for the typical arranged marriages in Indo-Pak region. Women are happy, working, studying, doing what they want to and living their lives until....one day the guy's family sends in "RISHTA" and all her independence is perished. She will have to ask her husband-to-be for everything she has to do, and not only that she has to be answerable to mother-in-law, father-in-law, sister-in-law etc etc.
