i dont c wats the big deal..i mean when you live with a person ..there r ten thousand things that you adjust with..n interfaith shouldnt make a difference until and unless the couple let it becomes one ..come to think of it, interfaith or same sex marriages, everyone should have the right to choose thier partner watsoever..coz ultimately u have to live with the person.not his religion..

yes samridhi it is easy to talk but tough to implement..and when a person converts after marriage that means that was not for love they tied the knot..religion should be kept aloof from love..

thats right nikhita...under hindu custom there are four castes...then we have other sects and religions.I think people should stop calling every muslim a terrorist..I really pity such people..I think everybody should keep religion and caste aside when it comes to country's development

The given topic was interfaith marriages.

I'd go with the overwhelming opinion on this one. There is no problem with inter-religious marriages. Ideally none of the partners should convert just for the sake of marriage, unless they've a strong personal conviction to change their religion. In that case it becomes a matter of choosing one's religion, and it should be treated seperately from marriage.

One of the big "problems" here pertains to the ceremonies of marriage. In case of intercaste marriages, arya samaj temples serve a useful purpose as the preists do not ask for the caste of the bride and the groom, as long as they subscribe to certain basic hindu tenets. In the absense of such a mechanism for interfaith marriages [although I suppose in certain pockets sufi shrines COULD possibly be serving such a purpose] the lovers have no option but that of a civil marriage.

I think progressive elements in society should encourage inter-caste and inter-religious marriages, as this is a sure-shot way of weakening fundamentalism based on the factors of caste and religion. The basic tenet of the continuation of the caste system is endogamy [or marraige within the same caste]. Similarly religions also grow out of endogamous marriages. Children born to inter-caste and inter-religious marriages are an aberration in the carefully-ordered worldview of the conservative, and as such he doesn't know what to do in such cases. Hence the strong opposition to such marriages in many quarters.

we SHUD think above caste and religion, but we DONT. i personally have no inhibitions 'bout caste and faith, but i can name a number of my frends who DO. i mean, muslims are treated as filth in this country, and only my being in a muslim dominated college made me realize how bad the situation ACTUALLY is. and lets face it......fanatism in india is on the rise

well i do not mean to disparage this topic but it seems unlikely to me that we will find some1 here who will come up and say that yes marriages should only happen between the same religion or the same caste....
