Married Life -

MANY Balinese marriages are still prearranged or negotiated, though young men may also "kidnap" their wives, and mixed-caste marriages are increasingly common.

Marriage customs differ from caste to caste and village to village, but all Balinese marriage practices share fundamental similarities. There are basically two ways to get married on Bali, ngerorod and mapadik.
