Thus literally, mangalsutra means an auspicious thread. When the groom ties the mangalsutra around his bride’s neck at the wedding, it is symbolic of their union as mates for life. Till death does them apart, the wife is meant to wear the mangalsutra as a testimony of their marriage, love and commitment towards each other. The mangalsutra is traditionally required to be tied in three knots. The three knots signify three important aspects for a married lady; first, loyalty to her husband; second, dedication to her new family and third, adherence to the divine lord.
