WHEREAS it is expedient to recognize and place beyond doubt the validity of inter-marriages of a class of Hindus known as Arya Samajists; it is hereby enacted as follows;-

1.Short title and extent.- (1) This Act may be called the Arya Marriage Validation Act, 1937.{ Subs, by the A. O. 1950, for the former sub-section (2).} [(2) It extends to the whole of India exempt { Subs, by the Adaptation of Laws (No.2) Order, 1956.for "Part B States".} [the territories which, immediately before the 1St November, 1956, were comprised in Part B States] and applies also to citizens of India wherever they may be.]

Dear sir,


Thanks for the reply, but i dont understand legal language, plz reply in simple language.


Marriage is valid. If her parents put any case on u and ur wife will give statement in ur favour then no problem for u.

Arya samaj marriage is as valid as SMA or HMA.U get it registered as soon as the marriage is over.But see that the girl stands by U in case of any legal assault by her parents.What is the attitude of UR parents.


My parents are happy and accepting my decision and ready to go and speak to her parent, but girl parent are not ready to speak to us. They are threatening girl, that they will harm or kill me if I she stop speaking to me. So we are planning to get married.
