A marriage can be a tiresome and tedious event, but it is also a social institution that legitimizes offspring and legally binds two individuals as each other’s wedded partners. Registration of a marriage can prove to be vital in protecting the legal rights of women and children in a marriage. In fact the importance of marriage registration is so much that the Supreme Court has made it compulsory register a marriage.

Registration of marriage can also come handy to acquire some key legal documents such as a PAN Card, Passport or VISA. So it is always a better idea to register your marriage.

A marriage certificate is a legal document that serves as an evidence of a valid marriage that has taken place between a bride and a groom. Marriage registration in India can turn out to be a simple and easy task if you know the correct procedure.

The basic requirements to obtain a marriage certificate in India

     ·   To obtain a valid marriage certificate it is necessary that a marriage has taken place legally. This means that the bride must be above the age of 18 while the groom must be above the age of 21 when the marriage took place.

     ·   The UID Number i.e. Aadhar Card is a crucial document required to register a marriage in India and thus if the Aadhar card is unavailable for any of the bride, groom or the witness, the marriage certificate application might get rejected. So it is highly advisable to apply for the Aadhar card before the Marriage registration process is initiated.
