who can a Mleccha marry?A mleccha is outside the varna system,i.e they are neither brahmins,ksaitryas ,vaisyas or even shudras.can a mleccha only marry a mleccha?Im talking about a convert,since he is not a vedic person by birth.

    @Carmensandiego Mlecchas aren't allowed to marry caste Indians. It's a sin for caste Indians to marry mlecchas for sure. – Ikshvaku Mar 4 at 2:32

    I am asking because I am a Mleccha convert.I think I can only marry a mleccha woman even if Im a hindu now.because were outside the varna system,and to those saying you can choose a varna this is not so.you cant even do that as a hindu caste person without Tapas. – johny man Mar 4 at 2:53

    Yes you'll have to follow the rules of Hinduism then, so you can only marry another mleccha. – Ikshvaku Mar 4 at 2:55

No one is a vedic person by birth. Lord krishna in bhagvat gita while describing the varna and ashram system he clearly mentioned that one is a kshatriya/Brahmin/malechha not by his birth but by his level of consciousness. E.G. brahmins were supposed to be 100% truth speaking personalities which none of them exist today. Even I'm a born bramhim but by looking at my qualifications i am for sure lower than the sudra.
