I had this idea in my mind for a long but didn't think it'd be possible. Then I read about 'sologamy'. That's when I thought let's marry myself: Kshama Bindu pic.twitter.com/5H7NVWdWOj
When she told her parents about her decision to enter into sologamy, her parents were astonished at first but agreed later.
While talking to ANI, she said, “I had this idea in my mind for a long but didn’t think it’d be possible. Then I read about ‘sologamy’. That’s when I thought let’s marry myself.”
The news of her marriage gained mixed reactions from the Twitteratis, Some mocked her, while some supported self-acceptance.
Claiming her marriage to be the first case of ‘sologamy’ in India, Bindu shared that she decided to come into this uncommon arrangement to set a trend in the country.
According to legal experts, the concept of self-marriage is not a binding or a legal affair in India.
As per Hindu law, marriage is a religious sacrament in which a man and a woman are bound in a permanent relationship for the physical, social and spiritual needs for dharma, procreation and sexual pleasure.
