India is a republic with divergent cultural joviality and religious sympathy of individuals living together displaying unity in diversity. The organization of marriage and the value-oriented family system are portentous features of Indian culture. The Supreme Court specified that every young man or woman with a right to marry cannot be accepted completely. Having esteem to the age and the biological needs, an individual may have a right to marry. Arranged marriage, (that too,) or inter-caste marriage is the commonly acknowledged norm in Indian society. Parents customarily select bride or groom to their offsprings in the same caste or religion. Society avoids those who marry out of their caste or community. Honour killings have been reported every year in India.[2] Fascinatingly, from the figures of the United Nations, one in five cases of honour killing internationally every year are of India. On the contrary, some NGOs are helping the performance of love marriages and outspreading protection for such love marriages.
