Death and Marriage in a family

Not open for further replies.

Dear Members,

What is the custom followed if there is a death in a family and marriage to be performed.
I understand the rule of arranging a marriage of a daughter with in a year and Son after the year of their parents death.
Does the same rule holds for other family members if there is a death of paternal uncle, uncle's wife and others.

Thanks in Advance for your feedback.



In normal course any death in a family gives sorrow. But a persons death after 65 years is known as kalyana savu. If that person belongs to the blood relation like fathers brother ( any relation in father side) will be adopted atleast a year

where any death in mother side is only for 13 days. because mother side gothra is different than father side
