Question about marriage ceremony
I would like to get some information concerning the restrictions on
individuals meeting prior to marriage. I am trying to respresent an
individual filing for finance status for a woman from India. The INS has
denied the application because the man and woman have never met, nor have
they had any substantive relationship. My understanding from the
individual is that as a hindu, it is common for marriages to be arranged
and for the man and women to be prohibitted from meeting. In order to
argue this case with the INS it would be helpful to have documentary
evidence of this religous restriction.
Thanks for any help.
