The institution of marriage has been regarded as the central feature of all forms of human society with which we are acquainted. It lays down the nucleus of society. It is one of the most important social institutions of not only India but the world also. Its importance is known since the pre-historic times. It evolved and developed with the socio-economic progress of mankind. Socially, it is an announcement of the new relationship. Since it is a demographic event, it has a great impact on social welfare. Needless to say, there are fascinating rituals and customs which are associated with marriage, right from the time of negotiation to the completion of marriage.
It is hoped that these volumes would be widely consulted by historians, sociologists, students, etc. in our own country and other parts of the world.
