ST Brides belong to a category called STs or "Scheduled Tribe". These are people who belong to the tribal communities traditionally. These brides may be living in their ancient villages today or moved to cities and living among others. Either way, STs are identified and recognized by the government and they are given lot of benefits in terms of studying in good schools, getting government employment etc. In general,STs get good support from various government organizations to do their studies in the school level itself. So ST brides are mostly well read.Depending on their talent and marks, they get to good colleges and get an opportunity to study and grow. These brides also get good jobs in this manner. All these are done to offset generations of suppression they faced by other communities. Now their families are having their first graduates, first employees, first entrepreneurs etc. which is a great social enabler. Once this bride grows from that community, she takes her entire family and people around them. The term ST points to a group, not a single religion or caste. Hence, STs belong to various castes and religions. This means, there is not a common set of habits or language that they are following. It is important that this is understood, especially for the matrimony related understanding. ST Brides and bridegrooms are identified by their families as those who are ready for marriage, and a suitable match is searched by a website or offline search through traditional channels. The details retrieved are then analyzed to ensure both the boy, the girl and their families are in fully agreement to their marriage. After that a marriage is planned as per the respective ST caste's methods.
