I clearly know that Rukmini and Krishna married each other with mutual agreement/wish.

But my doubt is whether the marriage happened against the wish of Rukmini's mother/ father/ siblings or all?

I allegedly know that Rukmini has to actually marry Sisupala according to their parent's wish. But Krishna eloped her with her wish.

But if it is true that Krishna married Rukmini against her parent's wish, is it allowed to do? If the girl accepts to marry, then the partner can elope her even though her parents disagree their marriage?

Or is there any special context for Krishna that allows him to do like that?

    Her parents were not opposed to the match - only her brother Rukmi who held sway in the family decision-making. – user1195 Mar 18 '17 at 3:09
