Marriage Dynamics and Aspects
Since ancient times, marriage has been an important cultural practice in nearly all societies. This practice has been carried on from a generation to the other till date. However, innumerable aspects of the same practice have evolved over time. The nature, work, as well as the features of marriage vary from one cultural setting to another. Generally in the modern world societies, marriages can either be civil or religious.
