Marriage System

Our subcontinent has historically been home to a wide variety of wedding systems. Some were unique to the region, such asSwayamvara (which was rooted in the historical Vedic religion and had a strong hold in popular culture because it was the procedure used by Rama and Sita).For centuries, arranged marriages have been the tradition in our society though men and women have always had the choice of who they want to marry. Even today, the majority of our indians have their marriages planned by their parents and other respected family-members, with the consent of the bride and groom.In most marriages the bride's family provide a dowry to the bride to safe guard herself and her children in the event of her husband passing prematurely. Hindus believe that once married the couple is bound with each other for seven birth cycles. Such is the depth and intensity of their faith in the institution of marriage. This is attributed by the various rituals they observe. .....
