Lalungs Marriage


Amongst the Lalungs some customs followed by them stress the important position of women in society. Lalung religious rites that concern women are conducted by women priests. A Lalung girl who remain unmarried or a woman whose husband lives at her father's house inherits a share of the paternal property. In the latter case, the bridegroom loses his right to his own father's property. The Lalungs have embraced Hinduism and their marriage custom are generally same as those of other Hindus, but there is no Homa. Marriage within the same clan is not allowed.
