Jain weddings are simple and very traditional full of rituals. Just like any other community, the typical Jain marriage consists of certain simple rituals in which some are pre-marriage, during marriage and some and post-marriage. Marriage for Jain people is a bond forever and is a declaration by the couple that they desire to be together for a lifetime.

Like many other communities, Jain’s also prefer to get their sons and daughters married within the community. They never allow their sons and daughters to perform inter-caste marriage or marriage in other communities. So they look for a boy or a girl within their community through online sources. In this fast paced life, no one has time to help others find perfect match for their son or daughter, so now parents are taking help from the largest Jain matrimonial Sites in India..
