Actually such type of marriages are not in vogue in our country and it is not only immoral but also illegal, assuming you enter into an agreement to marry but would you simply co-habit and donot have any physical relation with the girl, what if any of you want to break or even break the contract without the other persons knowledge or consent, hence, Such contracts are void ab initio.riven

akhil ji,
hindu marriage is not a contrect.

If you want your marriage a legal recognition, then either convince your parents or get married as per Special Marriage Act. The agreement to marry is not valid. Please follow the institution of Indian Marriage.riven

Marriage agreement are not barred by law and there is nothing illegality in it. it is very much valid but can not be specifically enforced under Specific Relief Act, 1963. However u/s 73 of Contract Act one can claim compensation and damages for breach of marriage contract.riven

Marriage registration is not equivalent to agreement to marriage. Marriage registration is not a contract its a completion and same can not be rescinded. Further, on the basis of marriage agreement one can not restrict the other person under law to marry someone else.riven

I agree with Mr Mukul.
However, under s. 23 of the Contract Act, a contract is illegal if the court regards it immoral, or opposed to public policy. The terms "immoral, or opposed to public policy" are always matters of debate. There can not be a definition of morality or public policy, as these have ever-changing nature. These are dependent upon time and place. Thus, Opinions of other friends are also debatable.

Marriage is not a contract under Hindu Marriage Act so no contract to this effect can be made. I think this is the only quarry which has duly been replied.riven
