    hello! this is what i've heard: example your elder brother got married this year (say june 2012), anyone else in the family cannot get married within one year of your elder brother's marriage. means the earliest you can get married is in july 2013..

    not too sure why, but i think the elder family are afraid that you will "steal" your elder brother's blessings and all. :x
    hope it answers your question!

    Yeah. It's kind of a taboo for other cultures too.

    some say that if you marry this year and one of your family member also marry this year, both of you will experience misfortunes in life.

    I heard it's a taboo for siblings to get married in the same year. If one sibling already is wed for this year, then you will have to wait another year before getting married.

    i guess the other bride should get married the following year and not on the same year as the other.
