Hypergamy colloquially referred to as " marrying up ", occasionally referred to as "higher-gamy"  is a term used in social science for the act or practice of a person marrying a spouse of higher caste or social status than themselves. The antonym " hypogamy " [a] refers to the inverse: marrying a person of lower social class or status colloquially " marrying down ". Both terms were coined in the Indian subcontinent in the 19th century while translating classical Hindu law books, which used the Sanskrit terms anuloma and pratiloma , respectively, for the two concepts. The term hypergyny is used to describe the overall practise of women marrying up, since the men would be marrying down. In rural India, hypergamy is an opportunity to modernize. Marriages in rural India are increasingly examples of hypergamy.
