First cousin marriage legal or illegal in India?

Recommended Posts

Guest Suphalpaul

:ok:According to Hinduism You can marry Your first cousin. Hinduism does not ban marriage with first cousin.

:(

We have not see any Title with name in Mahabharata, Ramayana. Example:Have you see in Mahabharata  Arjuna Sharma/mukarji/bhattacharia/paul/roy?

Have you See in Mahabharata Durjadana,Judishtir,Nakul,shahadev name with title?Our Braman Have created it. Our Braman Have destroyed Our religion.

But we can see now.we hear dullits etc Radical word about man.DO not believe any gotra.

:(Famous writer , filmmaker saittajit Roy Had married his first cousin.

:smiley: :ok:According to Hinduism You can marry Your first cousin.In the Mahabharata, one of the two great Hindu Epics, Arjuna took as his fourth wife his first and cross cousin Subhadra, the sister of Krishna. Arjuna had gone into exile alone after having disturbed Yudhisthira and Draupadi in their private quarters. It was during the last part of his exile, while staying at the Dvaraka residence of his cousins, that he fell in love with Subhadra. While eating at the home of Balaramaji, Arjuna was struck with Subhadra's beauty and decided he would obtain her as his wife. Subhadra and Arjuna's son was the tragic hero Abhimanyu. Abhimanyu himself married his first cross-cousin Sasirekha, the daughter of Subhadra's brother Balarama, meaning that first-cousin marriage occurred in the same family for two consecutive generations.[169] Later, Abhimanyu and his other wife Uttara had a son, Parikshit, who eventually succeeded Yudhisthira as the emperor of the Pandava kingdom after Abhimanyu was killed at Kurukshetra.[170]  :embarrassed:We must change our law.

I dont care whether its legal or illegal..if she loves me..i will marry her..its as simple as that! If homosexuality can be legalised in India..then i am sure even cousin marriages can be legalised.

You are desperate thats why ur understanding on special marriage act is how you want that to be..

Sorry to say "Only if custom governing is available its considered valid" .. If you loved your mother's brother daughter or father's sister daughter (Cross cousins) then you have a custom governing it all over South India..you can get a gazetted notice from any of the priest or State Govt officer and get married (and live happily ever after)

But if its a parallel cousin relationship (such as yours) there is no community I know in India that validates this .. I am also in the same situation (Father's brother son) so sorry to say you cant validate your marriage and believe me in India there is no one to help us rite now.

Its considered a SIN believe it or not

No babe they won't register your marriage if you say you both are cousins..With the name looks like you are from south india.

You can register without disclosing that you are cousins with the Arya samaj's marriage receipt or showing photographs but it may not help much if anyone complains it about you.If someone complains I am sure you ppl will not be arrested or something so dont worry,its just your marriage becomes void..As long as no one challenges your marriage (I hope if its not parents then this will happen only if either of you are celebrities) you are safe with that registered marriage certificate.Ofcourse none of the papers you guys sign in front of the marriage registrar or the registrar himself may not ask you any questions about your relationship.

We got our marriage certificate from Tamilnadu and no one questioned anything about it.When I posed this question to one of the lawyers he said "its not a marriage in the eyes of law but its an arrangement unless either of you challenges it against each other you can move on with your life as husband and wife".

What if all the cousin couples got together and decided a way forward to make our dreams come true.

Any suggestions, if we could make a social group and decide how to go about marrying.

myself 36yr old srivastava  male from varanasi u.p. having same problem(love with first cousin). I m in condition to either select my parents or my beloved since my parents have denied this relation strictly. i always stick with the feelings of my parents and it is final that i will always go with my parents but its too hard also to leave my beloved.Don't know what to do?

Also, it is normal and first cousin marry in India everyday. Can you help me with this. What is true and what is false.?

Except the your mother's brother(uncle)and mother sister(aunt) daughter you can marry your cousins.It is allowed in India.But the case is included in the above two cases then it will be difficult for you in the legal way.
