A week long survey which was conducted among both married and unmarried women revealed that 80% of the women believe that pre marriage counseling can help in minimizing cases of harassment after the marriage with over 5000 respondents. The survey which focused on whether marriage is making women secure illustrated that the married women feel more secured in life as well as at work place than the unmarried. In addition, they felt that marriage provided them the sense of security and a fence against work place harassments.

Further, 81% of participants agreed that education provides a sense of security and confidence which helps women to battle against different odds they face in everyday life. The survey further shows that, marriage in India is still looked at as a secured relationship which provides emotional security rather than financial security. Women’s outlook about marriage as undergone drastic change – they feel that financial security can not be achieved through marriage and further expressed that emotional connect is what they are looking at from marriage.
