Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie planning Indian wedding? [Rumor Mill]

By Liz Kelly

Are the stars of 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' set to officially become Mr. and Mrs. Pitt?

Could 2011's planned wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton be eclipsed by the marriage of Hollywood royalty Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie?

The Times of India is reporting that Brangelina are planning a Hindu wedding in the Indian province of Rajasthan next year under the guidance of spiritual guru Ram Lal Siyag:

The Siddha Yoga guru, who is said to have played a key role in bringing peace and harmony into the jet-set lives of Jolie and Pitt, is unconcerned about his name being bandied about in the western media. His disciples, too, refuse to disclose any detail about the glamour wedding.
The news websites also reported that Guru Siyag initiated the star couple into the Hindu way of life by giving them a mantra, which they are to recite every morning and evening. The mantra, those close to Jolie and Pitt say, has helped them in their relationship.

While an destination wedding would hardly be out of character for the jet-setting couple, Brad Pitt is oft quoted as saying the pair would not marry until gay marriage is legal.

"Angie and I will consider tying the knot when everyone else in the country who wants to be married is legally able," said Pitt in 2006.

Maybe Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and D.C. -- the five states and district that allow same-sex marriage -- are enough for him?

I can decide if their mantra is:

No more kids, no more kids


Magazine covers are good.

Hey Angelina -- attention-wh*re much? Trying to upstage a royal wedding ... honestly!

If they *do* get married, evidence mounts that the relationship is on the rocks.

In fairness, sometimes such couples wed to make the older kids feel more comfortable. Also, I didn't see them saying anything re upstaging the royals, so it's unfair to put words in their mouths. OTOH, maybe they want to upstage the recent Brand-Perry nuptials in India ;-)))

The pose in the above photo publicly is not
a permissible pose by Indian traditional behaviour. This is what makes the Indian arranged marriage different from the western mattern of "love marriage" when the
couples tend to think that they have matched their pair by courting but a large number of marriages end up in divorce, making the validity of matching the courting system questionable.

Of course there can never be a fool proof system but the olden Indian marriage custom
usually ends with their last breath. Even today, in the majority Hindu families, this custom prevails. The Indian arranged marriage is a spiritual bondage by contrast

I remember while in UK, they used to say there that the western girls prefer so called Indian boys due to their fidelity.

I hope that Bradngelina ties take them to their spiritual marriage level in stead of a physical marriage level.

God bless

Down at thee low-cal 7-11, they theenk that theese is a veddy, veddy bad idea.

Hey, maybe this way they can split the forces of the paparazzo- or the noise of one wedding can get lost in the other, or vice versa. Remember when Britney Spears announced her divorce the day of the 2004 elections? That was a smart way to bury the story.

The Indian arranged marriage is a spiritual bondage...


[T]he olden Indian marriage custom

On a serious note (ep, you here?), arranged marriages in India can also lead to such "spiritual" situations as the tyrannizing of the bride by her mother-in-law, even the murder of the bride by the groom's family. Ending with a last breath, indeed often sooner rather than later.

traditional behaviour.

That pose looks like a still from Mr. & Mrs. Smith. And they're not Indian so I think it's permissable.

If, & that's a big IF, they marry in India, will it be legal here? I've heard of others marrying here first (courthouse or otherwise) then marrying in foreign lands so it's legal in the US.

Their wedding would never be eclipsed by Prince William and Kate Middleton. Why would it be? Some of these posts suggest that an Indian marriage is a spiritual bondage. I guess it would result in a feeling of bondage if they keep reciting a "mantra". It would probably start out as a feeling of love and closeness and then end up in a feeling of bondage and a need to break free. Just my opinion. I'm not a fan of either, but I would have a little more respect for them if they did marry.

The News reports about Brangelina getting benefited through Guru Siyag Siyag Siddha Yoga is just one of the millions of incidents of Practical Benefits of Yoga.
The only Difference is that, in Contrast to the previaling form of artificial physical exercise based Yoga and Meditation methods being commercialized to mint money, this method known as Guru Siyag Siddha Yoga is totally Non-Commercial, available free of charge, in the form of Video clips on the internet, uploaded by Volunteers who got benefited through this method.
To learn or practice this method, one need not travel across the globe, one can get it sitting at home, from searching Guru Siyag Siddha Yoga Online Divine Mantra Videos on the net.
Finally, this method of Yoga has nothing to Do with Religion, it is a 'Practical Method of Living a Worthy Life', based on ancient Indian Vedic Science.
