Suman Marriage Bureau - FAQ's



  • How long has the bureau been established and how do I know I am joining a reputable agency?Open or Close

    The bureau has been established since 1972. As the first & largest Asian marriage bureau in Europe, we can confidently state that we have a larger clientele than other similar agencies. Our extensive advertising and long history confirm that we are not a quick money making venture that will disappear in a few days. We are also a founder member of the Association of British Introduction Agencies (Established 1981), which has strict guideline for reputable agencies, which we do adhere to.

  • How do I become a member? Open or Close

    You are required to complete our confidential registration form (which can be done on-line too), and submit the appropriate registration fee. Once accepted as member, you will receive an acknowledgement from us.

  • How long is my membership valid for? Open or Close

    The period of membership is 12 months from date of acceptance for the Standard Service, Special Personal Service and the Platinum Service. In the unlikely event that we are unable to provide you with at least the minimum guaranteed number of introductions (6) we will extend the period of membership accordingly. Occasionally, we may provide introductions after the 12 month period where memberships are pending or if we have had an extended holiday period.

  • What other charges are there?Open or Close

    The only other charge is the marriage settlement fee, payable 14 days after religious or registered marriage or cohabiting (whichever occurs first).

  • How many introductions will I receive?Open or Close

    We guarantee a minimum of six introductions throughout the year, but will endeavour to provide as many as necessary through out the year where possible without any upper limit, subject to availability and requirement.

  • Do you have people from my religious background on your books? Open or Close

    We do have people of all religious backgrounds registering with us. However, should you wish to know more specifically about any background or particular caste perhaps, then please feel free to contact us.

  • Will I be able to meet people from my area?Open or Close

    We can try to find suitable partners within your area, but must stipulate that we do not base introductions on locality. There are many other more important factors taken into consideration first, and we look at compatibility. If area is stipulated strictly as a requirement, we are unable to provide a minimum number of introductions guarantee.

  • How do I get to physically meet suitable people?Open or Close

    The bureau will provide suitable introductions based on the information submitted that is intimated to you either by telephone, email or letter. The actual meeting can take place in our office in Southall by prior arrangement (at no extra charge) which we will arrange, or clients can contact each other to make a mutual arrangement between themselves.

  • Do my parents have to be involved? Open or Close

    It showed a lady fitted out with a fur hat and fur boa who sat upright, raising a heavy fur muff that covered the whole of her lower arm towards the viewer. Gregor then turned to look out the window at the dull weather.

    Drops of rain could be heard hitting the pane, which made him feel quite sad.

  • Do I have a guarantee for marriage?Open or Close

    No. We can only guarantee to provide you with a service. We will introduce individuals who are compatible to you based on the information submitted. The information is used as a guideline and it does not necessarily mean that persons will always be exactly matched up to what you have requested, although we will endeavour to match as closely to the requirements. Whether or not you get married to any person introduced by the bureau is ultimately your decision to make, hence why we cannot guarantee marriage.

  • Can I upgrade my membership?Open or Close

    Membership can be upgraded at anytime, but it will NOT be pro-rata. You will simply pay the difference in the service charges, and the period of membership will continue for the remaining period.

  • What if I am not happy with the service?Open or Close

    Suman Marriage Bureau offers a personal service, and if you have any cause for complaint you should contact our office immediately in the first instance, to discuss any arising issue. We will do our utmost to rectify any situation.

  • How secure is the website (For Special Service and Platinum Service members only)?Open or Close

    The whole site is hosted through reputable servers for your complete peace of mind. In addition, all credit card transactions are through SECPAY, a secure payment company, to minimise any chances of outsiders obtaining your credit card details.

  • What if I forget my password for the online service?Open or Close

    Just email us on info@s-m-b.com.

  • Why are there different levels of services in the bureau?Open or Close

    Different people have different needs quite simply. Some people simply do not have the time to ask all the questions and go into the family background details and so opt for one of the premier services whereby we are more involved, and have to put in additional time and effort. Others are quite happy to receive basic details of a compatible contact and takes things from there by themself.

  • How do I remove my details from the bureau? Open or Close

    Just write in or email us on info@s-m-b.com. with this request. We will automatically remove your details if you find a partner through us anyway, otherwise we do keep your file on record after expiry of membership in case there is any other highly suitable proposal, in which case we may contact you again. If you should renew your membership we will actively keep searching for you. After expiry of membership, and providing you have received the minimum level of service at least, we will not be actively searching for you, but only advise you on the odd occasion where we feel there is a good chance of a successful match. Marriage settlement fee will still apply in such cases.
