Now as the time has advanced and a number of matrimonial sites being popularized along with all other available options the search is made easy. The boy and girl first see each other through photographs, chat over the phone and then it is them who decide whether to introduce each other with their families. Long after that it’s the time now for the families to meet. And if everything goes good and as planned then, it is the moment when the groom and bride announces that yes, he or she is the one with whom they wish to spend the rest of their life. It is an official way to tell yes now we are engaged.
