I have seen in a Vikram and Betal story that the prince is not allowed to marry the princess since prince has secretly learnt Archery from the princess in that way the princess is his Guru and Guru-Shishya Marriage is not allowed.

Is Guru-Shishya marriage prohibited in Hinduism?

Is it written somewhere that Guru-Shishya marriage is prohibited in Hinduism?

  • It is said that a guru is like one's father, because he gives jnana-janma (spiritual-knowledge life), just as a normal father gives biological life. Arjuna refused to marry Uttara, his dance disciple in Virata rajya. – ram May 5 '17 at 13:30
