The main problem is lack of COMMON-SENSE in people which then leads to unrealistic expectations. Let me elaborate. The girl's family these days ask for;The average age of marriage seems to be increasing gradually for both men and women. Mid to late thirties for men and late twenties for women has become a norm typically in urban areas of Pakistan. Well there are many reasons as listed in poll but in my opinion the unrealistic expectations both from the guy and girl's side is the root cause for this unnecessary delay in marriages.

-the boy needs to be WELL SETTLED and earning GOOD money at a GOOD POST.
-the boy needs to be HIGHLY EDUCATED.
-the boy needs to be RICH
-the boy needs to be SELF MADE so that he is NOT under the influence of his MOM and DAD.
-most important - THE BOY NEEDS TO BE YOUNG
Now here is the biggest problem - the boy gets a Master degree in Engineering or gets an MBBS and then tries to specilise in surgery (as an example), then goes through the work experience process, and finally progresses to a good role, HE IS ALREADY IN HIS EARLY 30s TO MID-30s. But then these idiots say "Oh the Boy is TOO OLD, our girl is only 20 or 22 or 25".
This is one example of idiotic and ludicrous behavior of a lot of Pakistani families who seem to be deprived of critical thinking skills. There are dozens of other such example, where people's behaviors, their expectations, etc . are nothing short of ludicrous.
