Human nature is unpredictable, either in ancient times or today. Change is necessary for a developing society, but such change should not bother the norms of the society. The institution of marriage is also affected with this human nature. Many known and unknown forms of marriages come in the light on the every next day. For a civilized society, it becomes easy to accept such marriages, which fulfills maximum of the objectives of a general form of marriage. But it is very difficult to give space such forms of marriage, which do not go with such objectives. Thus, people may consider them as sickness or propaganda or sin too. Sologamy is also one of them. This issue is necessary to discuss because it does not follow any object of a general wedding, but still it is called ‘self - marriage’. It is a big question that if sologamy does not follow any object then why we are calling it marriage. In this Article, we are going to know about sologamy, few incidences, nature and its impact. There were so many unrecognized forms of marriages in ancient times too, which were not following the essentials for the establishment of the marriage. At that time, such incidences, like sologamy, were not given place even in unrecognized forms of marriages. But they are being called as a marriage now. For a civilized society it is very important to differentiate between beneficial and non- beneficial things.
