The self-respect (Suyamariathai) marriage is one of the aspects of the Self-Respect movement which is held without the presence of a priest or brahmin. Generally a Hindu marriage is solemnised by a brahmin priest. The concept is brought to create a society where each and every person can feel a sense of equality. It teaches people that everyone should have an equal right to human decency. It aims to create equality between the bride and the groom. The marriage does away with the patriarchal customs like dowry or tying the thaali.
