Sexual mores are sexual customs or conventions regarded essential to or a characteristic of a community I believe it would be interesting to write about the sexual mores of two different than Christianity In this paper will focus on sexual roles of women and marriage in the Hindu and Islamic religions Hinduism is the main religion and social system of India This religion includes the belief in recreation the worship of several gods and the caste system as the basis of society Throughout time marriage has always played an important social function in Indias society In ancient times a ceremony termed horse-sacrifice would be preformed before a man and a women were united In this ceremony a horse was let loose to roam for one year than it would be captured and sacrificed After this sacrifice the bride lay beside the horse and imitated copulation with it The death of the horse represented the sacrifice and commitment that a man and women had to make for one another if they were to be married Marriage and sacrifice are closely related in India and an unmarried man is called one without sacrifice In more recent times marriage ceremonies have changed a great deal Each wedding in India varies depending upon the amount of wealth each individual family holds The typical wedding in India has the groom and the bride represent the sex god Shiva and his wife Parvaiti The bride wears a loincloth and a crown covered with gold and silver paper In this elaborate procession the groom enter upon a horse or in the case of a royal wedding mounted upon an elephant In almost all cases the fathers of the man and women arrange marriages Both fathers are to provide as much money as they could afford to the bride and groom and when the special day comes the fathers give their blessing by proclaiming May both of you perform together your duty
