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 - If the text says that remarriage is possible then it means that non-virgins can get married May 2, 2020 at 2:42
  • OK. Does it have anything to say on non-virgins that have never been married previously?
