I came across these posts:
- Cross-cousin marriage and hinduism
- How can Sage Kashyap marry daughters of Daksha, even they are parallel cousins?
After reading these and a couple of more posts on
Quora.com, a weird doubt comes to my mind.
Purana'sor any other
Granthahas any rules on whom to marry or whom not to marry? I seriously never came across any readings where it is written that you can marry your maternal uncle's daughter or paternal aunt's daughter (apart from the arjuna-subhadra story - please correct me if I'm wrong).
- If it is right or not a adharma to marry maternal uncle's (Mama) daughter, than why is it wrong to marry maternal aunt's (Masi) daughter? Is there any reference to this in
Shastras? There is a quarrel on this everywhere! But never a proper justification or logic...
I know this sounds very odd, even to me to be frank, but yeah! I need to know.
Note: I, myself, I'm against such marriages. So please, peace. Just tell me if Vedas and Shastras have this.
