It is not correct to say 60th marriage!

It is the 60th birthday, when many opt to do some Shaanthi homams.

Detailed description is given in Wikipedia.

Please search for "sashtiabdapoorthi".

I know what you mean, but just for argument, it may be his 60th wedding anniversary? We just went to a 60th wedding anniversary.



Sashtiabdhapoorthi is a Sanskrit name for a special ceremony on a person's sixtieth birthday. It has a special place in the Tamil tradition since the Tamil calendar follows a 60-year cycle. On this day, all the celestial bodies are said to align in exactly the same way they were during the birth of the individual concerned. The entire family gathers to give and seek blessings to and from the subject for continued good health and prosperity.


I do not believe it should be celebrated as another wedding. It is very Tamilian way, but now it has spread to other parts of the country.


On another Note, it is very male chauvinistic. Why don't we celebrate when a lady turns 60?

sir, our sastras has allowed ladies to have shasti aptha poorthy. . beema ratha shanthi and sathabishekam. in shanthi kusumakaram and shanthi ratnakaram grantha libi books they have not written any thing about mangalya dhaaranam. only shanthi is there. but we are doing it as loukeekam.

It will help relieve the burden of the 1st wife!..she passes him over to the 2nd wife.

Aging males can be a pain to handle.

How can an husband be suddenly defined as a burden....?

And what is the guarantee that the second wife accepts the aged male wholeheartedly,,,?

The proverb is 'No pain no gain'.

Best is for you to test it out.

Go get married again and see how it works out.
