A divorced young mum, Ankita, 26, looked into the future and saw a time where her daughter would ask questions about why other children all had mummys and daddys. Joining Startrishta, which is a fastest growing Matrimony site and matches couples based on interests and pictures, says Ankita, “was my backup in case I didn’t meet anyone the ‘regular’ way.” It took 2 months of being matched with other Startrishta members before she met Mohan. “His profile struck a chord—he was very religious, for one thing, which was important to me.” Those other matches had interested her, but fizzled once they got past initial communication. Not so with Mohan—whom she agreed to make a date with after six weeks of emails and hour-long phone calls. The reality rattled her. “I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, this is a real man, not just an email!'” Panicked, she put the brakes on. For all of a week! Six months later, Ankita and Mohan were engaged; they got married in April 2016.
