Respected All Experts,
please try to understand the below given chart.
ME ------> my father (X) ------> My grandfather (Y)
SHE ------> her mother (A) -----> her mother's father (B) -------->B's father (C)
Y AND C ARE REAL BROTHERS.
IS THIS RELATIONSHIP LEGAL ACCORDING TO HINDU MARRIAGE ACT ? I have read the 1955 hindu marriage act thoroughly but could not understand very clearly the definition of sapinda relation and prohibited degrees.
below pasted is the example of sapinda on wikipedia--
For example, if the bride is the offspring of any person within five generations (inclusive) on the groom's father's side and three generations (inclusive) on the groom's mother's side, or vice versa, they will be referred to as "sapindas" of each other. In these cases, the Hindu Marriage Act of 1955 bars marriage between two Hindus.
the phrase "ANY PERSON WITHIN FIVE GENERATIONS" confuses me. does this "any person" mean the full blood to my father or any damn person in that generation ?
waiting for your master strokes :)
