They typically last for days, there's mehndi (henna) and should you be fortunate enough to get invited as a plus one, try to make it through the ceremony without asking too many questions about dowries.

Chances are, the girl you're having out with will be down to go for Indian food, but she'll know a better place than you. She comes from a culture that, while beautiful, can be strict and occasionally overly traditional.Point being, while I appreciate the general appreciation for our food and culture and the occasional Ganesh reference on television, we could expand a little more. Tikka masala is just the beginning (though it sure as hell is a good place to start).So if you happen to be ~crushing~ on an Indian girl first, lucky you because I'm sure she's a knock out and a brilliant, amazing human, and second, here's what you need to know: WHY IS THIS A THING PEOPLE ALWAYS ASK?She might get a lot of pressure from her family to move in a specific direction. Some people make dosas, some make pooris, all depending on where they are on the map, or what their family prefers.Again, she might not, but know that it's a possibility. Just like our Northeasterners are different from Southerners, we have North Indians and South Indians, and so on. I hear how that sounds, but I don't care because while you were being a cute toddler, she was possibly being taught how to meditate in a temple an hour from her house.
