1) Endogamy : A rule of marriage whereby an individual is required to marry within a specified group of which he/she is a member.

b) Exogamy: A rule of marriage whereby an individual is required to marry outside the group of which he/she is a member.

c) Hypergamy: A rule of marriage whereby a girl is married to a boy whose social status is higher than her own. It occurs mainly among different subsections of a caste/sub caste rather than between castes.
