    One is married only because of some desires. A desire less person won't marry. – Mr. Sigma. Mar 24 '17 at 15:51

  • dharma, artha, kama, moksha - are 4 purusharthas. Kama is one of them. Marrying someone helps you attain all of them - do dharmas like yagas and beget good children, earn money, enjoy conjugal pleasures. It is not against shastras to gain profit (artha), or have pleasure (kama). just make sure, it is done within rules - should not cheat in business, should be separate from wife during menses or other spritual days. As long as artha & kama do not conflict with dharma, it is completely fine. – ram Mar 24 '17 at 18:22
  • @ram If both man and woman marrying are in business motivation means ok but for Example : A man is marrying a woman only for doing his duty which was given to him by lord, In the other hand the woman is marrying not for love but only due to his wealth as it would benefit her and her family(Father,mother,etc,...) . By this woman's action it is considered to be a cheating to her husband. So Is this adharma or Not ? – Sakthi Mar 25 '17 at 5:01

    @Rohit Its a duty too to marry..because without marriage no children & so no means of paying the Pitru Rina ..I think Shakti here is talking about marriages that are done with ulterior motives..For example many Kings were known to take brides for simply political reasons..He is probably asking whether such marriages are adharma or not.. – Rickross Mar 25 '17 at 5:08
