I dont think our society is that progressive. As far as I concerned, intercaste marriage is a good concept. There should be as much marriages in between Hindus and Muslims, Hindus and Christians, Christians and Muslims. Moreover there should be more marriages in between Upper Caste Hindus and the Lower Caste Hindus. These will reduce the communal tension in our society upto a certain limit. But the present day inter cast marriage will not help as much in this regard. Because all of these marriages are the result of love and these are very minimum. Our society is so conservatives and they will not recognize the next generation and they will be the scapegoats of present day intercaste marriage.

In my society in north east 99.9% of marriages are love marriage. There is hardly any arranged marriage but nobody gets ostracised by the society. I think even other part of India needs to have that outlook. Even in delhi where I work there is lot of love marriages and they are accepted. I think it is more of a problem in south india.

I think there is nothing wrong with inter caste marriage. I think it should rather be promoted. I have heard foreigner say that India is the most racist nation and it may be true also. Because we have so much of gap between different caste. If we really want to get rid of caste system in India I think intermarriage is one good formula. Yes, I grant that inter caste marriage should not be done purely to bring two communities together. There should be this important element of both the individuals liking each other.

Intercate marriage is a complicated case. When a man marry a girl not from his own caste it is called as intercaste marriage. Here in India its a great issue. What about in your nation?

I think there is no problem in marriying a girl with different caste. In my view only the views and tastes and interests should be same with both the person no way matter with the caste. I am surprised for insisting on caste marraiges no way around no-a-days they r going on. If you like a person and want to marry him/her just talk to him/her and with there parents and marry them thats all. I think for a marraige which is not a game its a life with a life partner with the whole life so in my view only the person who is willing to marry should have some norms for his marraige.

I guess it might not be a problem if the brahmin caste is marrying one caste lower. But my guess is that it's literally unheard of for a brahmin to marry an untouchable? I think the family would disown them. In the first place, apart from movies, I would find it hard to find a situation where they would meet and fall in love. Anyone has heard of cases to the contrary?

IF both agree then no problem, but problem arises when we think about relatives and family's responses.. If you think you are not doing wrong and your decision is good then go ahead.. dont think about relatives, but keep family member in confidence :)

in my view intercaste marriages are good. every marriage is made in heaven. people decide to live with each other. so, why should we think about relegions. god made only human beings but we made relegions. we are human beings dont think about relegions.

there is no problem in intercaste mariage if the understanding between the groom and bride is good. And ofcourse both are not minor. We create this caste system to protect ourself or to show our superearty. Now a days, People get educated noone take it seriously. If they talk about this then for a short period. Think your self.... If one couple is staying near you. What is your reaction on their relation.
