Pls tell me all the details sir..

The Hindu Marriage Act however forbids marriage between first cousins (such as in your case), unless it is considered the custom of that region/ community. So essentially if your family traditions would allow marriage between cousins (such as in South India) - it would be considered valid. Else while you may marry your cousin, the legality of the marriage as well as progeny from it would be doubtful.

Your marriage will be within the prohibited degree and it is sapinda relationship. Such marriage is not valid as per hindu law.

Marriage against tradition is defined.    Sex aganst tradition is not.    Many north Indians laugh at the traditions of south Indians.     But they don't laugh at people committing s*x with prohibited relations.     On the other hand, many people. using double meaning language, boast of such s*x.

Sadist laws can't help the Questioner whose problem is genuine.

Villain   21 April 2018

sir.. I can't convince her... she is saying that she will die if our parents don't agree for our marriage
