We had done an engagement ceremony, I am brahmin by caste. I was in process of VISA and my parents search a girl to marry in between. My VISA got approved. Due to time shortage we planed do to all rituals in engagements exception Saptapadi(taking 7 steps in presence of fire). I got marriage certificate under section 7 of Hindu marriage act 1955. My wifes VISA got rejected by US embassy and mine got revoked because she could not handle the situation.
Is there any law or some religious book which can proove that taking 7 steps are not mandatory. I know we were in hurry but just wanted to know if there is some way. Is it really mandatory step? Sindur and manglasutra are not sufficient?
You seems to be a big idiot, who is hell bent to prove that Ram is invisible and........If you are begging American visa for your wife then US Embassy has every right to question you about whether you have followed all the rituals during your marriage under the Hindu traditions. Had I been the counselor, have cancelled your application.
