First cousin marriage legal or illegal in India?

Recommended Posts

All Indian folks who commented above in this post i have few questions for you,

Where are you and what happened to you guys now????

Did u guys give up????

Did u let your love go marry someone else and you also compromised??

Did any of you tried something to live together?

Life is once, we should do something to live our life, my love(cousin) has stopped contacting me admitting that no one will accept our relationship but i didnt give up, i am doing my best i am trying to find ways , i have even spoke to my mom and her sister about this, I have a plan  and ill execute it ,im just waiting for her and trying to convince her to contact me..

Guys lets  unite then only something will happen else sit in a bar or some corner of your room and keep crying throughout life...

Is there any lawyer here?

dushyantrock,

We are not lawyers, and we don't give legal advice. We have a hard enough time keeping up with the different laws in the 50 States in the US. If I recall, there was a lawyer who posted either in this thread or a similar one. The obvious choices for those of you in India are none to easy to do. My advice is to migrate to a country where it is legal, and don't look back. In your culture, that is not as easy as it is in the US. I still think it is the best option though....

In the Mahabharat, Arjuna married his first and cross cousin Subhadra. Subhadra is the daughter of Vasudev and his first wife Rohini Devi. And Arjun was the son of Vasudev's own sister Kunti, who was the biological daughter of Shurasen (father of Vasudev) and the foster daughter of King Kunti-Bhoj. Also, Pradyumna's( Eldest son of SriKrishna) marriage with Rukmi's( Brother of Rukmini) daughter was also a cousin marriage.

So, hindu religion doesn't support cousin marriage is not entirely true.

guys! even i am in love with my first cousin once removed. fighting for it hard. as someone said, people here consider it as sin. But how could someone say she is like your daughter or sister, when she is actually not. its really hard to find true love. but when people find it, the try to stop us. Ridiculous!

there is should be a common voice to support all cousin lovers. we are not sinners common. we are just fighting for love.

it is a good idea to create a common community of all cousin couples. think about it guys. it might help any one of us or even a third person. no matter whom, but love shouldnt be let to die.

WE HAVE HEARD A COMMON GOOD THOUGHT THAT GOD IS ONE.

AND AFTER THAT HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE THAT GOD HAS MADE DIFFERENT LAWS FOR THE SAME THINGS IT IS RIDICULOUS AS IT IS MAN MADE.HINDUISM DOES NOT PERMIT IT BUT WITH CERTAIN  EXCEPTIONS IT IS MORE PREVALENT IN SOUTH INDIA .MUSLIMS CHRISTIANS  PERMIT IT.SOCIETY IS WHAT WE MAKE NOT WE GET.SAI BABA SAYS GOD IS ONE.COUSIN MARRIAGE IS NOT SIN ..I  DO NOT FOLLOW IN PATERNAL SIDE BECAUSE ITS A FAMIY AND SAME GOTRA ..BUT IT CAN BE DONE IN MATERNAL SIDE.

ANJU,

I have no idea about gotra, but, genetically, there is no difference between the sides of the family. Paternal is the same as maternal. In fact, actually, the maternal side would be technically closer, because of the mitochondrial DNA. I don't think it plays into the issues cousins would face, but, I'm not a geneticist either. For whatever gotra is, it is cultural, not of genetic significance. Both sides are family, and genetically, the same. Unless one side has an issue that runs in that side of the family, (heart problems, diabetes, breast cancer, oh, I don't know, ingrown toenails, who knows) only those issues would be any sort of further factor than the 1%-3% increased risks a child of cousins would statistically face. And, an unrelated couple who both have the same trait running in their respective lines would have the same chance of bearing children with a tendency to such an issue.
