Sir/Madam,
After ring ceremony happened, due to some complications, boys side wants to cancel the marriage as the reason behind the cause of problem occurs from girls side family. A family member of girl's family threatens not to do this marriage to boy's parents. After that boy side decided not to do this marriage after discussing with own family not because they feared but because they don't want to jump between these matters as they want a happy marriage not a quarrel. But girls side don't want to cancel, as they are saying they will not cancel the marriage and the marriage will surely take place. And in starting all these matters were hidden from boy side as all this incident occur on ring ceremony evening. Even girls family told on engagement day that the relative is a mad guy but after finding out we concluded that he is not mad. Even now girl's family are not telling the real reason behind this incident. Boy side all decided to cancel the marriage in any case.

Boy's side are ready to return all the gifts(including money gift) to girl side but they are not. This decision is made within 1 week of engagement and no any furthur bookings and dates were finalized. I want to know what legal actions they can take against boy side for cancellation of marriage? What should boy do now?

Dear Friend,
I do not hesitate in answering an anonymous query as i understand it is public platform and the querist for so many reasons may not want to disclose its identity.
Mere engagement is not marriage. Marriage takes place when according to the personal law applicable to boy and the girl all formalities like Shaptpadi or Nikah are completed.All other formalities before marriage like ring ceremony and engagement do not have any legal sanctity nor are mentioned any religious treatise. At the most these may in the eye of law may be said an exchange of promises on the part of both the parties to
solemnise marriage. This may be revoked by either party by giving a notice to other party for cancellation of agreement. In that case the party repudiating agreement will be saddled with liability of compensating the loss of another party. No party whether boy or girl may force any other party to enter into marriage.
