Language of title: English
Author/Creator: Augustus Molnar
One Sentence Summary: The article discusses the marriage patterns among the Kham speaking Magars of western Nepal.

Description: The article discusses the marriage patterns among the Kham speaking Magars of western Nepal. Unlike women in many Hindu groups in Nepal, Magar women exercise a fairly high degree of control over their marriages. Their marriage patterns are interrelated with and influenced by their economic roles in Magar society. Magar women are very independent economically and engage in many non-agricultural activities to generate income. The article describes their marital patterns and women's economic independence. The article is based on the study area - Thabang panchayat. It includes the kinship chart of Kham-Magars. (Rajeev Ranjan Singh 2007-01-16)
