Nata (Re-Marriage)

After divorce, one could marry again. In some castes the Nata system is in vogue, especially among the Rajputs, Jats, Gujjars, Meenas and Bhils.

According to this system, a wife can divorce her husband and live with another man of her choice as his wife, without going through the formalities of a marriage. This system is very popular in the rural areas because it does not entail any expenditure. This is marriage by mutual consent without the pomp and show of marriage. A widow can also live with a man as his wife without a formal wedding ceremony. This is known as Nata in Rajasthan.
