Some of the smritis like Manu forbids marrying a girl who is not a virgin.

Is there such mention in Parasara smriti also?


That's not true

From Parashara Smriti (28)

When her husband is missing, or is dead, or has renounced the world, or is impotent, or has been degraded by sin, — on any of the said five calamities befalling a woman, law has ordained another husband for her

  • This doesn't seem to address the question in the title "Do Parashara Smriti forbids marrying non-virgin girl?" – iruvar May 1 '20 at 22:41
  • @iruvar - If the text says that remarriage is possible then it means that non-virgins can get married – Carmen sandiego May 2 '20 at 2:42
  • OK. Does it have anything to say on non-virgins that have never been married previously? – iruvar May 2 '20 at 4:00
  • @iruvar - It cannot say otherwise the concept of kanina son would not exist – Carmen sandiego May 6 '20 at 16:06
