Marriage is a sacred occasion which as per Islam should be celebrated with utmost modesty. However marriage events have been overtaken by materialistic segments of the society that believe in boasting their wealth by organizing expensive and lavish wedding functions, ruining the sanctity of a marriage. Since marriage is a necessity in our society, it should be affordable for everyone. Those who spend extravagant amount of money on wedding functions should not be allowed to set unrealistic benchmark for those who canít afford. Parents get depressed just at the thought of organizing one function for their daughters due to unrealistic demands with regards to wedding arrangements.

This and much more has been proposed in this bill. Click and share with everyone!
