hi sahana,

it is always good and expected to be registered regarding the matters of importance in life specially in a country of which judiciary system has its significance world wide and imparts immence value to records.....  registration would be of great help and importance,

with thanks and regards



In order to get status of wife in india you must register your marriage compulsorily under registration act.

1. In order to claim the benefits of wife to apply for Passport to go for foreign country to live with husband.

2. If any dispute aroused between husband and wife  to get remedy in a court of law i/e maintenance, divorce, to proceed under dowry, domestic violence, get benefits of  service of working or worked husband  terminal benefits.

3. To get the status of wife in getting legal heirship certificate, succession certificate, to change the name of the husband after demise in revenue , property records and etc.

hello sahana,

the very matter is between u and your husband where it should be, we can tell you the legalities, but the decision is totally upon you, we just can hope that you people talk over the matter open mindedly and reach a legally well and individually very well decision,

hi dear,

it is very necessary to get your marriage registered for the benefit of both the spouses. the Central government has also enacted a provision, as a result of which the married couple without "marriage registration certificate" may be fined an amount of Rs. 25/-
