    What is the Sikh view on consummation and when is it done? Also since in Indian culture whether you are born in the East or West usually still makes use of arranged marriage (not talking about forced) so if this act of consummation exists then how does it work out for an arranged marriage couple?

    badshah ji

    Would you please write a little more extensively on why you believe this thread would be able to sustain discussion? Why is the topic important? How does it contribute to our understanding of religion, culture, or some related area?

    Yeah, well as you probably read from my Wikipedia link I posted in the Catholic religion for example consummation is important to finalise the marriage and since I have never heard of anyone talk about consummation in SIkhism or actually discussed it with anyone I have become interested in the toipic from a Sikh point of view.

    A lot of Western topics have been written on consummation and it is usually done on the wedding night or morning and I have never heard of any thing written or talked about from say an Indian point of view.

    So whats the deal with consummation from a Sikh marriage point of view? Is it required on the night or first thing in the morning or what? Does the Sikh marriage act say anything about it?

    Sikhi does not place much importance on things such as this. It is more concerned on whether you are doing "consummation" for the right reasons!:happysingh:

    With the sikh the view is from Guru Granth Sahib
    the principal is to minimize the senses with naam Simran .

    gurbani Shabad is

    Kaal boot ki hastni man baora rey chalat rachio jagdish

    It reletes with the topic under discussion

    The senses are not be supressed not be used excessively
    but possible only with the grace of Gurgu sahib.
    Act Wait and pray for the Grace

    badshah jji,

    I will put it very bluntly. In the Sikh marriage, all sexual matters (with the exception of violence), including consummation, are the business of the man and woman involved and no one else.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
