As others have noted, Indian weddings are famously lavish, and are often paid for by the bride's family. I have some personal experience with this -- though in my case not fully, partially because bride's parents could not approve of someone who cared so little about organizing one's life around the maximization of wealth. So the wedding never happened. But, if it had, I was clear that I was not paying more than half of what I considered a reasonable sum for a wedding. I'm white, so my figure was substantially smaller.
OP, I don't have any advice for you here other than to be clear and communicate what you feel and what you want.
It's often not either/or, it's "and", "also", and "as well". The student loans, postgraduate education loans, and house as well. Not a bad deal at all, choose your parents wisely.I say just give that much money to the kids. They can use it to pay off their student loans or put it towards a house. It's crazy
Or your in-laws!
Oh yeah, and does it have to be during a Michigan-Notre Dame football game?
