Online Desk : There are many stages a couple needs to cross before they jump from ‘love’ to ‘marriage’. And after everything goes well—finding a soulmate, seeking approval from parents and hundred other relatives, etc.—one Herculean task that most couples need to do is to decide a wedding date that is agreeable to all.

So many things that need to be considered before fixing the auspicious date—the ‘pandit’s’ approval, availability of wedding venues on that day and whatnot.

A lot of times, a couple might have a special date on their mind, for example, the day they first met or when they fell in love etc., on which they would love to get married, but given the circumstances, they end up agreeing to a wedding date that comes pre-approved by all. Now, given a chance to choose a wedding date of their will, what would people select? Did you just say February 14 because this is the day dedicated to love? Don’t worry you aren’t alone. According to a recent survey conducted by the matrimonial website Jeevansathi.com, At least 55 per cent of the Indian youths find it romantic to get married on Valentine’s Day.

The study, where over a 1,000 millennials and Gen-Z respondent participated, also elaborated that while most men (55 per cent) within the age of 26-33 years are keen to take their wedding vows on the most romantic day, half the women are inclined to consider other factors in choosing their wedding dates. The survey took into account the opinions of a wide cross-section of people across India including cities like Delhi/NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Pune, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Lucknow, Jaipur, Nagpur, Indore, among others.

Besides bringing to light this interesting choice of a wedding date, the survey highlights unconventional trends and brings about interesting gender comparisons. The report revealed that spending Valentine’s Day alone seems to be the most popular choice with women, who are clearly ahead of the curve in celebrating self-love.

Out of those women who did want to celebrate this universal day of love with their partners, most of them would like to spend some quality time at home. Interestingly, one-fourth of the respondents said they would like to spend the day with a loved one other than their significant other, i.e. a parent, sibling or a group of friends.

The survey also showed that five per cent of the respondents would love to take a break from the hubbub and go on a vacation with their partners.
