marriage determined by parents or relatives. However, the Armed Marriage system was ever practiced throughout the world. The movement of Armed Marriages gradually ended in the 18th century from all the world, but in India, it is also in the 21st Century.Two people who were not aware of each other for a few days were tied in bond for a lifetime. However, this arrangement was contrary to the self-governing system adopted in ancient times, in which the boy and girl had the right to choose their own life partner. It is estimated that this system became more popular due to the child marriage system.2.
Murder for protection (Honor Killing)Honor killing is the murder of the so-called ‘honor’, one of the most intense acts in India. The happiness and the pleasure of marrying a young woman in India is not everything. Marriage is possible only if the young man should be from a fixed caste, religion, community and social status.Those who disregard these ‘rules’ can be killed as they believe in their relatives. Parents, brothers, and all the other relatives kill their son, daughter-in-law, siblings, etc. who break these rules without any reluctance. This is the most surprising and sad aspect of this social evil.
