Marriage registration means solemnizing a marriage according to the marriage registration law. Couples may opt for a marriage registration due to various reasons. One common reason in Tamilnadu is marrying against the wishes of family or any legal process. 

The Supreme Court of India, in 2006, made it mandatory to register all marriages. In India, a marriage can either be registered under the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 or under the Special Marriage Act, 1954 and Tamilnadu marriage Act 2009. The Hindu Marriage Act is applicable to Hindus, whereas the Special Marriage Act is applicable to all citizens of India irrespective of their religion. The Hindu Marriage Act provides for registration of an already solemnised marriage, and does not provide for solemnisation of a marriage by a Marriage Registrar.
