• Online marriages

I need a info regarding online marriages. Bride is in India and the groom is in USA. Both the families are willing for the marriages. Groom will not be able to come to India till next one year. So is there a possibility that marriage can be done online and get registered.

Thanks & Regards

1. How can the marriage be done online? Can you arrange online an agnikund which is indispensable for a Hindu marriage? How will the bride and groom take rounds before fire?

2. If bride and groom are in two different countries they may marry under the Foreign Marriage Act before the Indian Consulate but this requires them to appear together before the consulate.

No marriage can be solemnized online. Physical presence of both the persons is required for a proper and valid marriage to take place under Hindu Law. The law requires signature of both the persons getting married to sign in presence of the Magistrate.

This query will stretch for online child production too.
There is no such thing called online marriage, how can you get a marriage certificate for a marriage that has actually not happened or solemnized as per law. 
The parents of bride and groom are not getting married, so it cannot be tenable.
