Newsflash: Not everyone is into arranged marriages.

When you think of India, does marriage automatically come to mind? Whether you consciously agree with it or not, there's a common misconception that all women from India are living happily in an arranged marriage. But the truth is that not every woman spends her life waiting to be married off. In fact, most women don't even want to bother with a relationship, let alone a marriage with a total stranger.

And we get it. Picturing the image of a young woman being told that she has to marry someone she doesn't love (especially if it's against her will) leaves a bitter taste in our mouth.

But here's the thing. Just because we're so used to hearing about this doesn't mean that the majority follow this rule. In fact, it IS possible to be single in India (just like in any other place).

To take it a step further, Sex and the City writer and co-author of He's Just Not That Into You Luz Tuccillo did some pretty interesting research of her own. She traveled around the world to see what being single is like in different countries.

Prepare to be AMAZED at what she found out about the single life in Mumbai, India!

The women she interviewed pretty much confirmed this by saying "Yes, that's it. I love my freedom and thats the most important thing in my life. In my mind, I'm very free. I want to do my own thing. I wouldn't mind probably adjusting a bit, but then it should be my own choice. It shouldn't be because somebody's forced it upon me."

Don't get us wrong. There's nothing wrong with being in an arranged marriage. There are actually cases where the couple ends up falling for each other. But the fact that some women are opting to work or date around proves that at the end of the day, you're responsible for your happiness.

We can't argue with that!
