India is a country of diverse customs and traditions. Marriage is a concept which is largely driven by the customs prevalent in the country and because of this there are several legislations on marriage and divorce. The paper will examine how compulsory registration of marriage with uniform procedures can play an important role in avoiding vexatious matrimonial conflicts and other social evils like child marriage etc. The existing laws on registration of marriages and state legislation on compulsory registration after Supreme Court’s guidelines will be closely analyzed. The effectiveness and utility of each law will be analyzed from the bare reading of the law and with the help of case laws
