it's barred under section 5 of the Hindu Marriage Act 1956 and as per void part is concern family members can challenge it before court and it ll become null and void.

Only husband and wife can maintain challenge of such wedlock and none other person may be parents,family members or stranger can challenge in court of law.

A marriage between the parties who are sapindas or in other words a marriage between the parties who are of his or her relations or of the same family.

Under section 5(v) of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955, which states that if the Hindu bride and the Hindu groom are "Sapindus" of each other, the marriage between the two cannot be solemnized by law and will be legally void.

If your marriage is void, you can face the following consequences in the future -

  • You don’t have the position of husband and wife in a void marriage.
  • Childrens are called legitimate in a void marriage (Section 16 of Hindu Marriage Act, 1955).
  • Mutual rights and obligations are not present in a void marriage.

You can refer to Arun Laxmanrao Navalkar vs Meena Arun Navalkar on 12 April, 2006 to understand more about sapinda relationships and why they are void.
