The survey was conducted online with 6,500 responses from single Indians in the age group of 25 to 34 years, to understand the expectations of single Indians.

As many as 3,538 men participated in the survey, as against 2,962 women.

When single Indian men were asked "If women should contribute to the household expenditure", 39.6 percent men said 'Yes'.

While, 48.3 percent of those surveyed said, "It's up to the woman if she wants to contribute or not", and 12.1 percent said that "Woman's contribution is not required if the husband is earning".

When single Indian women were asked the same question, 49.7 percent said 'Yes', while 42.4 percent said "If required, women may contribute" and 7.9 percent said "No, they shouldn't".

The survey also attempted to understand the mindset of today's generation. When single Indian men were asked "If they are okay staying at home and their wife working to support the family", 43.5 percent men said that "they are fine with it".

The idea is 'unacceptable' to 21.3 percent of the men while 35.2 percent said, "May be, if it doesn't create ego clash".

On being asked the same, 59.5 percent of the women surveyed said, "May be, depending on the situation", while 30.4 percent said "Yes, they are fine with their husband staying at home" but 10.1 percent found the idea "unacceptable".

"The survey gives us an interesting insight into how the Indian mindset is changing over generations. We have always believed in equality of the genders and we are glad to learn that Indian youth believe in the same," Gourav Rakshit, chief operating officer, the matrimonial site said in a statement.
