The concept of marriage is deep rooted and had always been exhorted by the dominance of minds, from selectively abiding the ceremonies & cultural practices to breaking the main core of it unknowingly, the civilizations have come a long way to decipher the dire need of having pure ‘n’ pious foundation of marriage. One such foundation is Age which is still a matter of adjustment among many. The article aims to suffice several aspects of marriage surrounded by age as superior of all, history and legislation governing the sanctity of marriage, fundamental approach contended by the legislation, governments’ proposal and initiative, need to revise the age for marriage etc. India being a country rich in heritage and diversely united demands a uniform code for the age of marriage, in totality it would espouse the vitality of marriage from getting tarnished. Marriage is now way beyond than affair of two families, keeping the perspective wide, marriage through revision of legal age can be interpreted as the population control model, career-oriented growth and healthy nation. Thus, the benign step towards the change can functionalise the eroded vision of the people with regard to marriage.
