Having sex with a virgin woman is generally considered as Gandharva Vivah.

But What about non-virgin woman? Is having sex with non-virgin woman sin ? Is it minor sin (for man) ?

Can a non-virgin woman marry someone else ?

People often cite this verse of manusmriti to tell that non-virgin woman can't marry. But It is wrong as no where virgin word is used. The word used is Kanya. Kanya doesn't mean Virgin.

Manusmṛiti-8.226

pāṇigrahaṇikā mantrāḥ kanyāsveva pratiṣṭhitāḥ nākanyāsu kva cinnṝṇāṃ luptadharmakriyā hi tāḥ
