Marriage is a social institution and many customs and rituals are associated with it in different cultures throughout the world.
In a typical Indian set-up, marriage fire is lit as such a ritualistic exercise. In the poem, “marriage fire” also has a symbolic meaning indicating to the passion of a newly-made relation through marriage.
