A marriage certificate is an authoritatively verified document given by an official. This certificate proves the legitimacy of the marriage. This declaration conveys the name of both the people, time, location, and witnesses of the marriage. A marriage certificate is a basic record for a newly hitched couple. It is a permit that lawfully authorizes their marriage. Arya Samaj has faith in the hallowed bond of marriage. The custom of marriage in Arya Samaj is open for Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, and Jain. Arya Samaj provides the certificate after completing the ceremony of marriage.
