    8 types of Hindu marriages

    There are eight types of marriage described in the ancient Hindu text of Manusmriti or "Manava Dharma Shastra":
    • Rite of Brahmana (Brahma) - where the father of the bride invites a man learned in the Vedas and a good conduct, and gives his daughter in marriage to him after decking her with jewels and costly garments.
    • Rite of the Gods (Daiva) - where the daughter is groomed with ornaments and given to a priest who duly officiates at a sacrifice during the course of its performance of this rite.
    • Rite of the Rishis (Arsha) - when the father gives away his daughter after receiving a cow and a bull from the brightgroom.
    • Rite of the Prajapati - (Prajapatya) where the father gives away his daugher after blessing the couple with the text "May both of you perform together your duties"
    • Rite of the Asuras (Demons) - when the bridegroom receives a maiden after bestowing wealth to the kinsmen and to the bride according to his own will.
    • Rite of the Gandharva - the voluntary union of a maiden and her lover, which arises from desire and sexual intercourse for its purpose.
    • Rite of the Rakshasa- forcible abduction of a maiden from her home after her kinsmen have been slain or wounded and their houses broken open.
    • Rite of the Pisaka- when a man by stealth seduces a girl who is sleeping or intoxicated or is mentally disbalanced or handicapped.

    Reema, probably, all our marriages come under RITE OF PRAJAPATYA. Under this type, we marry according to our caste and customs.

    The other types are not common in these days. It would have been common during the days of Rishis etc.
