Rabhas Marriage

Amongst the Rabhas, both widow-remarriage and divorce are allowed with sufficient liberty, Pan Phala  or the system of tearing a betel-leaf is observed by them as a mark of separation. The Rabhas have the custom of paying bride-money. Even today children assume the name of their mother's clan; on the other hand, the father's properties are inherited by his sons; in all religious functions, the father is the head. Marriage within the same clan is not allowed.
