Marrying an older girl

It's not a message but it is an question that can a boy (my friend) of age 20 can marry a girl of 24?... As they both are relatives.(cousins) as there parents are elder brother(boy's dad) and his sister (girl's mom)

Boy should be 21 year old. Further sapinda marriages are prohibited unless customs are providing the same.

Such a kind of marriage between relatives are allowed in south india.

Age doesnt matter as long as the girl is over 18 and boy 21

#saravanan_s boy's age is 20 but girl's age is 24...she is elder than boy... Will it work... Plzz tell me as he is much more worried as both of love each other but thy r having fear to tell to their parents due to age.. So will it work?

If boy completes 21, he can marry

Siddharth Srivastava (Advocate)     16 December 2017

For marriage the boy should be of 21 years of age. Such marriage is prohibited and barred being spinda in relationship.

You can benefit from the advice of Mr. SHIRISH PAWAR.

Sudhir Kumar, Advocate (Advocate)     29 December 2017

pwer-se (unless personal law applicable in the areas allows) marriage will be illegal even if boy completes 21.


Boys entering in illegal marriage run the risk of landing up in rape charges.

Kumar Doab (FIN)     30 December 2017

Until the personal law that applies and customs (proven) in the community provide for such marriage, the marriage may not be valid.
