Intercaste marriage is it possible?

Hi Priyanka,
As a father of a single daughter I would like to advise you to think before acting. the fact that you have chosen to ask this question shows your concern at this decision. I can fully empathise with you and your state of mind. Before taking any decision please take into consideration a few factors. Is the boy able to take care of himself and a family at his early age? Are you ready for it too? Then comes the aspect of parental acceptance; is there a resistance and is it based on some logical misgivings? Please do not underestimate the impact it will have on both you and your family. I suggest you decide what are the factors important to you long run and decide if at least the most important ones are ticked. Dont be in a hurry. You are too young, and can wait for a few more years. If at the end of it all you still want this do it but not now. Maybe after at least 3 to five more years of assurance that this is best for you. By then both of you should take your studies and career more seriously and achieve a state that makes you both confident of living life together happily.

I am a single iyengar male. There are a lot of non brahmins and 'liberal' brahmins here. So, dont take people who say "yeah sure, go ahead" seriously. Id say, if you've gotten intimate with him in any way, please run away. If you're sure, please do run away, we dont care. But just one thing. Run away and dont ever come back. A lot of women who go out maintain ties with their family, just for the brahmin tag. Thats called '****thanam". Because you'll begin to see the true colors of your lover and his family and friends, and they'll goad you to bring more of brahmin culture and language and habits. We didnt develop those so that odugaalis like you can daaravathufy that to NB's for your itch. So, its your life and you can do WTF you want with it. But choose either side. Dont touch brahmin culture again, and talk brainwash other brahmin girls. Odi poradhu na nee matum po. Thirumba varadha. If you come to your home with a paavamana moonji and maybe a baby, obviously your mom and dad will take you in, because, well, its 21st century. Thats what parents are like. But that caste doesnt belong to you alone. It belongs to me too. And if i cannot add to it, i can prevent it from being sullied by non brahmins who want to sully brahmin families and culture. They are using weak minded loose women like you who are blind to it. And who cannot take tough decisions. This is why women are said to be guarded. I cant let you and your hormones and your mom and dad to sully the caste tag that belongs to me. I can try, but the whole society is against brahmin males and supportive of females (you know why). So, have some vekkam maanam soodu soranai. If you run, dont turn back. For every one guy like me, there will be 1000000 people who support you. Still, this is my view. And remember, caste is patriarchical. Y-chromosome. Its passed from male to children. Thats why they said 'guard your women' (which im sure caste and family of that boy does, namba jaadhi thaan ilicha vai aache.) Because only men know how other men think. And thats why they attack brahmin men the most, especially in movies. Making it socially awkward,

I know how to handle this. Which 'backward caste' does your boyfriend belong to? Do you know what mindset they have? And do you know how differently they view brahmin women and men? Do you know how much hate they carry towards brahmins and how much venom they spew, in social media? I dont mind all that, and i can withstand a lakh times more. You are weak genes. I think you can be conveniently shed to shudras. Unna madhiri case lam avanga thalai la kattiduvom. Only, dont come back again. Your mom and dad will take you in. But the caste tag doesnt belong to them alone. It belongs to us, men. Thats why they are against the men, and for-women. Thats why they talk 'pen viduthalai'.

hi

i am not against LOVE marriage...but if this same situation continues....its very difficult for BRAHMIN BOYS....

THESE AMMANJIS HAS TO CHANGE....becoz many brahmin gals prefer non brahmin boys.....VARNA SANGARA

is inevitable in modern days...MARRIAGE IS NOT TWO INDIVIDUALS....MARRIAGE IS OF TWO FAMILIES...i may

be wrong in this modern world...but i have seen in my own family....these things very hard in later life...
 
I am iyengar girl (22) . I am in love with backward caste boy (24)for a year we know each other very well . He said if my parents agree he will marry me definitely. Can you people guide whether he is good for me?

As a member in family having gone through an intercaste marriage my advice is not to choose this option if you can. If you are unemployed it is more difficult, once marriage is over you are on your own as your parents cannot support you on cultural and social matters relating to your husband family. All in your husband family may not be supporting thus marriage for various reasons complicating situations. marriage is successful due to support of many in soceity and in this major support is from your parents and your fiance family. If you think you have all this go ahead,

Dear Sister

First of all think of family Back ground.
In this world you can buy anything except parents and sentiments
Being born in Brahmin family, which in this world no one can, unless there is you have balance in your previous birth
everyone can say something, it is you life
All future good & bad things have to be considered while deciding
Conversion is simple, back to normalcy is not possible
Birth in Brahn=min community is a very big gift in this world
Culture & habits will differ from caste to caste
Brahmin culture will never go with any other caste
Think many a time before deciding.
There were so many boys in our community more than the qualities of other caste
humble request is to save our community - it is going into minority - after some 50 years you may not even find

Hai, we should appreciate for your guts to come up for opinion in a forum. While its nothing wrong to go for intercaste, please consider following three. 1) If the boy eats non-Veg, either you should get converted to non veg or he should change his food habits. Mostly boys wont do. (Non Veg does not make any one stronger than Veg). 2) Is he a non smoker and non Drinker? If yes by him, don't believe. Have it verified. These are normally hidden by a boy before marriage. 3) If your parents says no, then tell boy big NO. Otherwise, in the event of any misunderstanding/ boy behaves rudely physically, you will be virtually on the streets. Do not break Parents relationship with a plan of starting a new relationship. You need both parents blessing. Remember that its not possible to reverse the status after marriage again as unmarried. Ask him to exchange mutually your phones suddenly with out notice if you have decided to marry. If he is hesitant or ask for a days time, surely you should cancel your plans. Any way, wait till you attain 25 years with some education & employable skills.

Please do a pros and cons of this life changing decision and decide.

If your parents are very conservative, they will oppose this all their lives and insult you and your partner every time you meet them.

And your life and your partners will both become hell.

The age of people who participate in this forum is 60+. Most of them have lived a sedate conservative life. They are living in yesteryears.
You are a young person living in modern times, you do not have to listen to our opinions.
Live your life on your terms, not on someone else's.

In Bhagvat Gita Krishna says:
Chapter 3: Karma-yoga
TEXT 35
sreyan sva-dharmo vigunah
para-dharmat sv-anusthitat
sva-dharme nidhanam sreyah
para-dharmo bhayavahah

It is far better to discharge one's prescribed duties, even though they may be faulty, than another's duties. Destruction in the course of performing one's own duty is better than engaging in another's duties, for to follow another's path is dangerous.

The society may not agree, or your family may not agree, but if you listen to your heart and understand your expectations, live by that.
Else you will regret it for your entire life.
I wish you the best in life.

But like Brahmanyanji said we have discussed this issue multiple times. And there is no one uniform opinion.
So if you real and still visit the thread please make your calculated decision, and if possible update us.

This subject has been discussed many times in the Tamil Brahmins forum.
Legally nothing prevents you to marry a person of your choice.

Be sure it is the "love" drives you to marry a person of different community. Or it is the infatuation which is common at this age, that wants company to fulfill the natural urge of companion ship.
Life does not end with a marriage, rather it is the beginning of most important phase in the our life, which requires a lot of adjustments and support for smooth sailing.
It is a fact no one can be supportive at the time of need than our parents.
It is my experience in our own family, which has liberal views, I have seen many love marriages in the extended younger generation living inside and outside India. Statistically I should admit many of them failed in the long run. Main reason is the failure of compatability due to economic independence. As a class we have lost the family hierarchy,
which allowed members to communicate with each other and make decisions about how to move and grow as a family. The most typical and healthy structure that existed in our families of the past.

Being good friends is different from good husband and wife.
Think about this, discuss with your parents or well wishers and take a good decision.

wishing you well,
Brahmanyan

I start to wonder ..I have seen people from 2 different parts of the world...who do not even share anything in common right from DNA to religion yet they can stay happily married.
Not one but so many.
Many Chinese and Indian intermarriage take place here and divorce rate is hardly significant.
Children grow up embracing both cultures etc.
I have seen Caucasians and Indians too marry and stay happy..again both embrace each others culture.

I get a feeling in India each person is culturally dominant hence all this failure to live happily.
I have seen cases where TB women marries non TB guy..she invariably want to transform him into a TB and dominate the scene.

Why cant there be a compromise and have a shared culture?
If one wants to follow only TB culture then by all means marry only a TB and not force someone else to be what he is not becos each person has their own Dharma and these can't change even under sword point.

So if one cant compromise..marry the own kind.
Its fair to both.
 
Discussions are interesting and the reality is go with parents liking as you may require their support in the case of some eventuality. After some time both boy side and girl side think differently and unadjustable , needs they will all pose differences which becomes difficult later than initial days abd keeping this in mind discuss openly with your parent before spelling out your decision to otherside

Ma'am this is outright fraud and forgery. Can you please share details of those examples? Brahmin men and community will be made complete fools.
If change happens, we have to adapt.But it's this protracted effort to malign and weaken tb community that ppl are generally not aware of. Most men invariably secretly carry bitter feelings towards brahmins. Or, they have friends who can do this for them. Help a friend's to "correct a Iyer figure". But then the elders well talk pagutharivu.i don't know if tb's understand the SOS. We have to embrace change, but encouraging things like this, saying "listen to it heart and do it if it makes u happy" etc etc is foolish. And odugaalis trying to make tb's out of nb's is fraud. They need that tag,but don't want to follow the rules. Once out, stay out. Can I make thevars and goundars out of paraiyars and pallars? Is that possible?. The parents are just unbelievable. In an attempt to look open minded and progressive, they are putting sand on their own head, to borrow from a common parlance ?

I personally know cases but I cant mention it cos these are people known to me and I cant mention their names...what I wrote is not a lie...you seem new to forum..so I am excusing the accusation of fraud and forgery you wrote about me.

What I was trying to say is in India people are still very culturally dominant whatever their caste if I may add.
Even a Msian Indian Non Brahmin I know divorced her Tamilian Non Brahmin same caste husband from Tamil Nadu becos she could not adjust to his concept of marriage which seemed just too traditional and dominating.

As I said no one can change..so its not fair to force anyone to become what they are not.
A Non Brahmin cant become a Brahmin and a Brahmin cant become a Non Brahmin in behavior..so you are right when you further added that a Gounder cant become Thevar and vice versa.

What i was trying to say is I have seen caucasians married to non caucasians here and their marriage lasts till old age cos both adopted each others culture and they celebrate both diwali and christmas and life goes on.

So for Hindu and Hindu in India from a different caste why is it so hard?
The reason is there is no common ground cos both want to dominate each other and as usual its a female that ends up dominating the house in India.

Aiyo TBS Garu...that Lovvu was so so long ago...it would have been young love..eventually everyone moves on in life.

Your wife is nice to you and you are happily married and you are saying that your parents are happy and you may not be?

Kya yaar....how are you so sure if you had married your lovvu you would be this happy in life like you are now?

Everything happens for a reason..its always for the better and not for the worse.

Ok ma'am. Sorry for the misunderstanding.i didn't mean you. I meant the people that you mentioned. They are committing fraud and their nb husband and their friends and families will obviously not care about it.
I'm single and I don't know about marriage and all. But I know generally that the divorce rates of arranged marriage in India is the lowest. And I believe the intended philosophy and thought behind it is also the most refined and pristine. And that's why I want to do what I can to protect it. And, FYI, this is not the way to destroy caste system. Dr.Ambedkar didn't mean this. This is just a way to weaken brahmins, and I have to at least fight against it right. Thanks. Excuse me if I have hurt any feeligs

I am surprised how his post didnt get moderated.
Its down right insulting to Ms Priyanka.
Mr Gokul, you have a right to give your opinion but please choose better language.
You have no right to call another persons daughter names.
Surprised to see words like "loose woman" used on Ms Priyanka.
Seriously?
If you want to advise a girl to not make a mistake in life you can do so by being kind and loving.
Yes..you are right...there are many Non Brahmins and Liberal Brahmins here but not anyone else here used such harsh language on a girl who was merely asking here opinion.

Kindly learn to use refined language.


Just a reminder of 'guard your woman' talk..at the end of the day no matter what you can say about being Y chromosome and all...its a mother who tells her child who his/her dad is.
Without the word of a woman the Y chromosome is not validated unless one resorts to a DNA test.

By American you mean a White American isnt it?
Cos american is a citizenship and it can be anyone from Asians, to Hispanics, to African Americans and Indians too.
