For centuries now, Indian marriages are supposed to be the biggest show of pomp and happiness that is existing.

Families and friends join in to make the occasion of marriage a memorable one for the couple. Lighting, food, dance and decoration all combine together to make a glam event.

But where all the festivities, happiness and bliss seem to die down is the event of remarriages.
Remarriages have often been looked down upon by the Indian society, with parents marrying off their daughters and sons in discreet and unassuming events so as to avoid the so called society’s glares and comments. This self-created shame seems to increase in case of bride’s parents as they tend to feel this pressure from society more than the boy’s side.

Even if the girl’s previous marriage was called off because of dowry issues or due to incompetent and undeserving husbands, nobody seems to mind. Ultimately the girl is to be blamed for all that has gone wrong with the marriage. Also, widow remarriage still is a cause for great unrest and shame in Indian society.

This taboo with remarriages is also prevalent on the grooms side with remarriage being looked down upon by all sections of society.

But lately this trend and outlook towards remarriages seems to be changing for penipu good. No longer is second marriage considered something that has to be kept a secret and not to be disclosed.
