While one has to agree that everything changes after marriage, it is the sacred bond between husband and wife that helps them to survive everything together. One of the symbols of this scared bond between the couple is mangalsutra. In traditional Hindu marriages, the groom ties a sacred thread on the neck of the bride and takes her as his wedded wife. This thread is called as mangalsutra where mangal means auspicious and sutra means thread. It is traditionally worn by the married women as a mark of their marriage. Many women wear mangalsutra for the rest of their life until the death of their husband.
Mangalsutras in different cultures
Not only, it is such an important and sacred part of a married woman, it has also become an accessory to suit your every attire.
