Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Henogamy is a social custom allowing exactly one of the children (or male children) in a family to marry.

Henogamy typically exists in order to preserve family property. It is practised by the Nambudiri Brahmin caste in the state of Tamil Nadu, India.[1]
