I. Đoạn báo IELTS TUTOR phân tích
The list of qualities that an "ideal Indian bride" must possess is always growing. The latest addition is proficiency in English language.
Arranged marriages are common in South Asia. But a new trend in the Indian state of Punjab is reshaping the way young people get married. It involves choosing a partner based on their English language proficiency.
In recent years, many young men and women in the state have increasingly faced issues like economic disillusionment and drug abuse.
In search of a better life, they often seek migrating to countries like the US, Canada or Australia. They usually want to find work in these countries, either as unskilled or semi-skilled labor.
For their part, the young men's parents look for young girls with a drive to study and get their sons married to them. The agreement is that the girl scores well in English language proficiency tests and get admitted into a foreign educational institution. The groom's family then pays for the girl's education and for the couple to move abroad.
As a result, hundreds of International English Language Testing System (IELTS) coaching centers have opened up in the state. A good score in IELTS increases the chance for a "good marriage."
[...] In some cases, girls are required to take the IELTS test after the wedding. They could be divorced if they failed to get a good test score and take their husbands out of the country with them.
[...] Some people say the practice is a new kind of dowry. In many parts of South Asia, the bride is expected to bring items of value — furniture, jewelry or money — to her husband's household as a precondition for the wedlock. The inability to fulfill dowry conditions could jeopardize the marriage, often resulting in abuse.
"There is no authentic data about 'IELTS marriages,' which makes it difficult to analyze," a senior bureaucrat from the state told DW on condition of anonymity. "However, this practice could put an end to a systematic discrimination against women. It is kind of a 'reverse dowry'".
[...] Women's rights organizations in the state have expressed concern about this practice, saying that women who are unable to hold up their end of the bargain are often subjected to domestic violence.
