Inter-religion marriage - is conversion necessary afterward?

Page no : 2

Arup (UNEMPLOYED)     07 February 2011

- In both above scenarios, if it is a registered marriage, will the above laws have any effects on the conversion scenarios?

 

- WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY REGISTERED MARRIAGE? A MARRIAGE REGISTERED - UNDER SPECIAL MARRIAGE ACT OR HINDU MARRIAGE ACT?

UNDER SPECIAL MARRIAGE ACT, PERSONS BELONG TO  DIFFRENT RELIGIOUS GROUP CAN MARRY. NO EFFECT ON CONVERSION.

- Isn't two people's love supposed to be the most important thing here?

NOT LOVE BUT QUAREL  IS  IN QUESTION BEFORE A MARRIAGE ACT.

LOVE HAS NOT IMPORTENT IN MARRIAGE LAWS.

BY DEFAULT IT WILL BE THERE.

Arup (UNEMPLOYED)     07 February 2011

- If both partners wish to follow their original religion AND they respect each others' decision to do so, will the law still enforce at least one of them to be converted?

 

- NO. YOU HAVE CONFUSION.

Arup (UNEMPLOYED)     07 February 2011

THE CONFUSION comes by this way. the legal provisions of a marriage act are as bellow.

The Hindu marriage act for Hindus only, where both the partners expected to be hindu. similarly  mohamedan and christian marriage acts are for the followers of that religion respectively.

special marriage act  for all religious persons, better to say, irrespective to religion.

it does not mean that, if they are from diffrent religion and marry under a perticular religious act, the marriage will be void. it is not like that. marriage will be continuing, till a court declare it voide.

Dear Avnish

Kindly note that Special Marriage act is silent about practicing religion after marriage. Nowhere in SMA is mentioned that Girl after marriage will surely follow her religion only
