In Pakistan, people/elders/parents (not all) are ready to sacrifice every thing including their own life and children’s just for the honor of their sect/cast and tribe system, they belong to. Which is why, most of the girls are still un-married and crossed a certain barrier of age required to give birth to the childrens especially in the small cities/towns or villages.
Example: Parents belong to Syed cast only want to marry their daughters to Syed families. Rajpoot only marry their daughters or sons in the same cast. Religious Sect conscious people only want to marry their daughters in the family of same sect.
For our Elders ! Just for the ego and pride, we are ready to destroy the life of any human being especially of daughters/sisters for not getting them married even if they cross their age or die…..Still we are called Human Beings….
(These are my own thoughts, you may agree or not)
