As per the custom, women in India, after marriage go to their Sasural and stay with them; while men visit their Sasural from time to time. However, this custom is changing and the newly-married couples prefer to stay on their own in a separate house because of multiple reasons. If a bridegroom stays in his Sasural, then he is called a ‘ghar jamai’, which literally means the ‘son-in-law who stays at home’.
