  • In some societies marrying with near cousins is allowed and it is accepted so if it is a practice in that particular tribe or group then it is legally also correct to do so. The Hindu Marriage Act does not put any restrictions on that type of marriage in those communities. At the same time in general in Hindu communities (barring a few one) near cousin marriages are culturally not admissible and the law also says so. As per the act marriages up to 3 lines of ascent that is third generation in mother side and 5 lines of ascent that is fifth generation in fathers side are not legally admissible. If someone doing that then it is as per their own risk and in case of divorce or property dispute there would be a big problem as the marriage itself would be declared as illegal.

    In your case it comes within the above periphery so it seems it is not admissible. But you have to check what is the norm in your own community and that would decide the final thing.

    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.

  • You are the first generation.
    your father is the second generation.
    Your father's mother is the third generation and their father is the 4th generation.
    You are within the five generations (inclusive) on the groom's father's side.
    You will be referred to as "Sapindus" of each other.
    In these cases, the Hindu Marriage Act of 1955 bars marriage between two Hindus of this nature. Your marriage may fall under the special marriage act.
    Many communities in India marry the mother's brother's daughter. But not the father's sister's daughter. All depends on the customs of the family. So you have to make a decision based on your conditions and family relations.
    Legally your marriage is possible as per the Special Marriage act.

    As far as you are concerned, to marry your father's sister's daughter, you can get married with her. Traditional marriage systems prohibit marriage in a gotra. Still, in many areas of the country, a gotra does not get married, but in 1955 the Hindu Marriage Act was created and all the old customary laws were changed.
    Real Brother-sister, uncle-niece, aunt and nephew, real brothers 'children, sisters' children many more Relationships come under the ambit of a Prohibited relationship and if someone marries in such relationships, it will not be valid. According to law , Spinda relation cannot marry. That is, if a boy or girl wants to get married in the 5th generation of the father and the 3rd generation of the mother, then she cannot get married. This is called the Spinda relation. However there are exceptions to the Prohibited relation and the Spinda relation.
