So if a girl is divorced/widowed ain't she has right to get remarried? Nowadays many girls and boys are divorced and getting remarried, nothing big deal in that. So if a girl remarry does that mean she's going on naata. Whats the difference between naata pratha and divorcee/widowed girl getting remarried?
