...why is it, that in Hindi TV serials, a girl will wear salwar kameezes before she gets married (usually in the beginning of the serial) and only sarees after she gets married (usually within 9.5 episodes :P), and then will constantly wear said sarees unless she and hubby dearest go on a vacation without the in-laws, which is only when she permits herself to wear salwars again???
Is there some unwritten rule, that you're supposed to wear salwar kameezes before marriage and sarees after?
I heard (from my mother), that in some serial (which btw I do admit to catching if it's on coz it's just SO FUNNY; I feel like it's from another century or something), one old guy who's supposed to be the patriarch of the family, did say something like: "Doesn't she know that it's the tradition of this family that a girl only wears sarees after she gets married???"
At that point, I gave in to my cruder instincts to mentally say "WTF" when I heard about it. Ah well...
