Learn More About Marriage
Marriage and religion

Hindusim sees marriage as a sacred duty that entails both religious and social obligations. Old Hindu literature in sanskrit gives many different types of marriages and their categorization ranging from "Gandharva Vivaha" (instant marriage by mutual consent of participants only, without any need for even a single third person as witness) to normal (present day) marriages, to "Rakshasa Vivaha" (marriage performed by abduction of one participant by the other participant, usually, but not always, with the help of other persons).

Islam also recommends marriage highly; among other things, it helps in the pursuit of spiritual perfection. Age of marriage is whenever the individuals feel ready, financially and emotionally, for marriage. It should also be noted that in Islam, marriage is not a religious concept as it is in many religions, but a civil contract between a man and a woman

Most Christian Churches Bless the couple being married; the wedding ceremony sometimes involves a pledge by the community to support the couple's relationship. Religious Comunities widely hold marriage as a relationship uniquely allegorical to God's relationship with the people; the husband represents God and the bride represents the whole of God's chosen people


A marriage may be celebrated with a wedding ceremony which can be performed by a religious officiator or through a similar government-sanctioned secular process. Despite the ceremony being led by someone else, most religious traditions maintain that the marriage itself is mediated between the two individuals through vows, with the gathered audience witnessing, affirming, and legitimizing the marriage.

Rights and obligations

Marriage sometimes:

  • establishes the legal father of a woman's child;
  • establishes the legal mother of a man's child;
  • gives the husband or his family control over the wife's sexual services, labor, and/or property;
  • gives the wife or her family control over the husband's sexual services, labor, and/or property;
  • establishes a joint fund of property for the benefit of children;
  • or establishes a relationship between the families of the husband and wife.
Finding a partner
In order to get married, it is necessary to find a suitable partner. A partner may be found by the person wishing to be married through the process of courtship. Alternatively, two marriage candidates may be matched by a third party, typically with the match finalized only if both candidates approve of the union. This is known as an marriage.
