Manu Smriti 3.9 says this: "A man should not marry a woman named after a constellation". Now, Swati is a constellation. So, is it wrong to marry a girl named Swati?

    Then how will you explain Vasudeva's wife Rohini and Balarama's wife Revati? – Surya Apr 22 '16 at 10:56
  • @Surya: So, either ManuSmriti is wrong in this context. Or, Vasudeva and Balarama were wrong? – Amit Saxena Apr 22 '16 at 11:25
  • Manusmriti does not apply to all yugas. – Rickross Apr 22 '16 at 15:00

    @AmitSaxena, well I'm never able to put manu smriti under religious book category, anything written in sanskrit doesn't means that it is related to hinduims and talks about it. – Mr. K Apr 24 '16 at 9:01
