Marriage is a kind of relationship that takes place in human life. A marriage takes place depending on the respective culture and tradition of a particular group of people living as a society. This is a process that takes place all over the world according to their circumstances. These circumstances reveal the prosperity of their cultural practices. In this case, the marriage ceremony of the tribes living in the Yelagiri hills of Tirupattur district depends on the old customs and traditions. This article goes to apply Richard M.Dorson’s folk cultural aspect theory to know the methods and record the marriage system as an essential part of these tribes.
