Lingayat supports marriage


If man and wife reflect each other
that is the perfect doing,
that is the way to become one with
Koodalasangamadeva. -Guru Basava/378[1]

As two eyes have single vision,
if the married couple can be with one feeling
it is an offering to Guheshwara linga,
Sanganabasavanna. -Allama Prabhu/472[1]

The united devotion of husband and wife pleases Shiva.
The un-united bhakti of husband and wife
is like mixing poison with nectar,
Raamanaatha. -Jedera Dasimayya/1771[1]
