The most important ritual in the marriage ceremony is Kanyadaan i.e. the donation of a girl (daughter). It is said that when the father of the daughter donates, then the groom (boy) has to fulfill all the responsibilities related to the girl’s life.

According to Hindu religious texts, the groom is considered to be the form of Lord Vishnu in the marriage ceremony. When the girl’s father hands over his daughter’s hand to the groom following religious rituals, the groom assures the girl’s father that he will take full care of his daughter.
