In Telangana, the Lakshminarasimha Swamy temple is famous for performing marriages. But now they stopped doing marriaes for over a year due to problems like parents of couples approaching courts against such marriages, mostly in case of minors or when someone would seek divorce at a later stage.
Proposals were made by officials to set up a marriage registration certificate at temple itself. A final decision is yet to be taken,” said Gongidi Sunitha, government Whip and TRS Alair MLA of Nalgonda district, where the temple is located.
There no need to stop performing marriage of majors in the temple just because they don’t possess marriage registration certificates.
Hindu marriages are performed as per tradition, rites and customs and not based on certificates.
