Doubt on marriage related shastram

Namaskaram Swamy,

I am having one doubt on marriage related aspect. Will it be against the Shastras, if a marriage takes place between a boy and a girl where the boy is older only by 2 or 3 months than the girl? Now a days, the age gap between the boy and girl has come down where it is mostly around 1 to 2 yrs. In that context, will it be a mistake if the gap is less than 1 yr – Given that the girl is younger, other aspects such as gothra and nakshtra are matching and both their families are relatively good in terms of bhakti and anushtanam.

Kindly clarify.

Namaskaram Swamy,

Kindly help to clarify.

Although the minimum prescribed difference is 1 year, if other things match and the girls parents willingly seek this alliance, then it can be done for lesser difference also.

Sri Ramanuja Munaye Namaha,

Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Swami Thiruvadigalaey Sharanam for clarifying and suggesting the “Brahma Vivaah (Ideal & best type of marriage)” 👫🐥out of the “Ashta Vivaah (8 types of marriages) prescribed in ManuSmrithi.

Adiyen Sri Velukkudi Krishna Dasan,
Uyya Oraey Vazhi UdayavAr ThiruvAdi,
Sarvam SriKrishnarpanam Asthu.

Srimate Ramanujaya Namah! Sri Sriranga Narayana Jeeyar Swamigale Saranam!

Sri Velukkudi Swamigal Thiruvadigalle Saranam!

Dhanyosmi Swami for taking time and clarifying this. Adiyen’s was arranged marriage and our difference was only 3 months. With Emperuman’s blessings, we have been happily living for the last 18 years, so adiyen was curiously waiting for the answer. Now adiyen feels a bit relieved 🙂

Azhwar Emperumanaar Jeeyar Thiruvadigale Saranam! 

Srimathe ramanujaya nama:

Thank you very much for clarifying, Swamy..
