Such marriages are result of the love between two minds that have courage to break the caste barriers.

It took a lot of efforts for such couple to gain the hostile societies confidence and get their due social status. The Government on its part encourage such marriages and even offer rewards.
The inter caste married parents face the greatest obstacle when they want to perform the marriage of their son or daughter. The problem gets more complicated in choosing the caste of the would be bride or groom. In spite of crossing the caste barriers in their own marriage they fail to arrive at a decision in choosing the life partner for their son or daughter.
