Common Culture : Agamous Marriage

The majority of the tribes follow agamous marriage in which a man can marry any woman within and outside his clan. All the major tribes like Gangte, Hmar, Lakher, Lushai, Paite, Tedim-Chin, Thadou, Vaiphei, etc follow agamy. The only exception to this rule are the so-called Old-Kukis (Anal, Kom, Mongsangs, etc) where there are definite wife-takers and wife-giver.
