The quick answer is yes. However, as previously said, before marrying or being married to a Sikh, you must first convert to Sikhism. This is because Sikhs believe the Guru Granth Sahib forbids marriage between Sikhs and non-Sikhs. The Guru Granth Sahib says, "No one who takes another person's life will be called my disciple." Since it is forbidden by the Gurus to kill others, then why would they want us to marry someone who kills people?
In addition, many other factors may also come into play when deciding if you should marry a Sikh woman or not. For example, some women may feel uncomfortable having a husband who wears a turban and beard because they think this means their husband won't be able to satisfy them sexually. If this is a concern for you and your wife-to-be, then you should discuss it with her before marrying her so that you are both on the same page with each other.
Finally, remember that while it is permitted by the Guru to marry a Sikh woman, that doesn't mean you will have an easy time of it. Many men assume that just because a woman is Sikh, she will accept anything he does or says. This is not true at all. A Sikh woman will expect her husband to behave honorably and respectfully towards her no matter what religion they belong to. In other words, she will not tolerate abuse.
Yes, a Sikh can marry a non-Sikh, but the non-Sikh must be prepared to believe in Guru Sahib. After the couple submits to him in adoration, the Guru blesses the union. Non-Sikhs' souls cannot merge until they surrender to the Guru. As a result, the marriage is declared null and void before the Guru. The husband's family then has the right to end the marriage.
In popular culture: Did you know that there are many songs and poems about the love between Sikhs and non-Sikhs? Some examples are listed here: Sun Moon Love by Art Alexakis, I Can Only Imagine by Lakewood Church, and To Be Like You by David Cook.
Non-Sikhs are not permitted to marry in a Gurdwara. For example, if two Sikhs want to marry, they can only do it while Guru Granth Sahib is present. The same holds true if a Sikh wishes to marry a non-Sikh who has converted to Sikhism. A wedding ceremony cannot go place unless the Guru Granth Sahib is present. This is because it is considered very disrespectful to marry without Guru's approval.
The first thing that comes to mind when thinking about marriage is sexuality. However, marriage is much more than just sexual relations; it is also about honoring your partner, being there for them through good times and bad, and staying together forever or until death does you part. A marriage between a Sikh and a non-Sikh cannot be performed by a Gurusahib because it would be violating their rules and would not be considered a valid marriage.
Sikhs are monotheists, although they are not religious people (Jews or Christians). If a non-Muslim converts, it is no longer considered intermarriage, but rather a marriage between Muslims, and hence not forbidden. Even if one partner is not a Muslim, the other must be at least nominally practicing to be married by a Sikh priest.
In fact, many high profile Sikhs have married women from other religions. One such couple was Amar Singh Beeber, who was a famous hockey player and coach, and his wife Chahat Beeber, who was a tennis player. They were both born into poor families, and became successful professionals themselves. They had three children together, two of whom still play sports. The third child died at just eight months old due to an illness.
Interfaith marriages are not permitted in Islam, but many Muslims marry outside of their faith - especially among the wealthy and educated elite. Some scholars in Islam's history have even suggested that all marriages outside of Islam should be nullified, but this view is not accepted by most Muslims today.
In conclusion, yes, interfaith marriages are allowed in Sikhism, as long as both partners are willing to accept this marriage.
A nonconformist Sikh can marry anybody who acknowledges Guru Nanak. The short answer is no. Inter-caste marriage is not and should never be an issue. Inter-religious dialogue is not permitted. Conversion to another religion is also not permitted.
However, just because a Sikh can marry anyone else does not mean that they will be able to live together forever. When two people marry they enter into a life partnership where both parties are equal. This means that if one spouse decides that they do not want to remain with the other then it would be best for them to find someone else that fits their needs better.
Also, just because you can get married in the Gurudwara doesn't mean that you should. Some couples choose to get married outside of the community in order to mark the occasion with dignity and respect. However, without the permission of the wife's parents some marriages may not be legal and could lead to problems in the future.
In conclusion, yes, a Sikh can marry anybody else as long as they understand and accept Guru Nanak's philosophy. Not only is this type of marriage acceptable but it is required too. Without love and respect nothing else matters.
