This paper is a study on the marriage of transgender individuals in India. The research focused on incorporates both, the existing law on marriage in the country and foreign judgements that have given their ratio on the same matter. The Arunkumar case of the Madras High Court has been discussed, alongside the landmark cases in the US, New Zealand, the UK, Australia, and Hong Kong, in order to draw inferences and provide interpretative guidelines for determining the state of transgender marriage in the current legal regime in India. The paper treads into analysing the possibility of homosexual marriage in a very limited manner and primarily focuses on rubrics on which interpretation can be based off of.
