In Indian context marriage is a relation between man and woman to have legitimate sex and also to have legitimate children but above these factors it is a strong bonding to take care, to give support and to contribute in the success of each other. It is true that marriage has its impact on both men and women. In India the impact of marriage on women is more as compare to men because Indian women has to leave their parents house and to go to their husband’s home for living. This means that there is a complete change in all the aspects both behaviourally and environmentally. This change may have positive or negative impact on women behavior.  Sometimes these changes help women in achieving her dreams which is positive side of marriage and sometimes it leads her to the worst conditions like misery, mental and sexual harassments and inhuman behaviour. All these factors had a strong impact on the behavior of Indian women. The present paper is an attempt to find out the changes in behavior of women after marriage.
