Here are some important details about the Hindu Marriage Act:
  • This act requires Hindus to have only one wife or spouse at a time, making polygamy illegal in India. 
  • For a Hindu marriage to be legal, both parties involved should be Hindus and follow Hindu procedures and customs. The couple must have consented to the marriage.
  • The groom should be at least 21 years old, and the bride must be 18. 
  • The Hindu Marriage Act prohibits marriage between close relatives or within the same clan. This act allows for divorce and annulment under certain conditions, like cruelty or mutual consent. 
  • The Hindu Marriage Act is intended to ensure that Hindu marriages are conducted legally and ethically while respecting both parties' rights.
  • Armaan Malik came to take part in Bigg Boss OTT 3 with both his wives, but Payal got evicted. He is now continuing the game with his second wife, Kritika. It was reported that Armaan converted to Islam years ago, but his wife, Payal, recently informed IndianExpress.com that he has not changed his faith.
