I have conversed with a guy for marriage. I am a mature girl and am a writer too. Apart from writing, I am into teaching and also worked as an editor.
I want to ask you what should I consider a guy, who in the very first conversation asked me whether I was having any previous affair. Is this question justified? I never shoot such questions to anyone. I am a mature girl and yes my marriage is delayed. The reason is that I have not met the man with whom my mental level matches.. it should at least 70 percent of mine.

Hello Young Lady,
In the Indian context, this is a very normal question a prospect husband will ask his wife. We live in a country that gives so much importance to premarital affairs and virginity of a girl. Even if the man has himself had many affairs before marriage, he wants a girl who has had none of these. I do not consider this mature or immature. It is just a formality of the society we live in and something that has been going on for years. Answering such questions can be embarrassing. Ideally what happened before marrying shouldn’t become part of marriage. By asking such a question he would drag the past into your marriage.
A man who has asked such a question on the first day surely will have his own reasons to keep tabs on you and your activities. He might just be insecure in some areas of his life and that insecurity will surface after marriage with you.
As for your mental balancing with that of a man’s, it is not easy for me to say as I do not know how you are weighing the balance.
