This time marriage Panchami will be celebrated on Wednesday, 8th December. According to the Bhrigu Samhita, marriage is the occasion of marriage on Panchami, which means that anyone can get married on this day. Yet people hesitate to get married on this auspicious day. Find out the reason behind this.
Therefore, marriage is not performed on the day of Panchami:-
Ram-Sita has set an example of an ideal life among the common man. They have taught the lessons of high values, love and dedication of people's lives. The Sita-Ram duo is considered to be the ideal pair. Yet people don't like to get married on their wedding date. This is because there were a lot of sufferings in the lives of Shriram and Mother Sita after marriage. Both suffered 14 years of exile. Then, Mother Sita had to undergo a fire test. Due to social beliefs and his fair principles, Maryada Purushottam Prabhu Shri Ram abandoned pregnant Sita. Thereafter, Mother Sita had to spend the rest of her life in the forest and while staying there, she raised her children. Seeing so many struggles in the married life of Rama and Sita, people celebrate their marriage but do not marry their children on this day. Due to which the misery that Sita Mata and Shri Ram have suffered, their children should never have to bear it.
