Nature of marriage migration varies depending on social rules associated with marriage. It is more or less a universal tradition for brides to shift to husbandís home after wedding. Migration of men in India usually occurs for work, whereas life time migration is universal among women because of marriage. The main aim of this paper is to test the suitability of a polynomial model on Indian data, collected from the Hindu dominated rural areas at different times i.e. in 1978 and 2002 and 2015.
