In one of the rituals of a Hindu marriage, the groom shows the bride the double stars of Vashista and Arundhati as an ideal couple, symbolic of marital fulfilment and loyalty. On the second bright day of the lunar month of Chaitra, a fast in her honour is observed in certain regions of India by ladies whose husbands are alive. This fast is observed with the belief that the ladies observing it would not be widowed

The concept of marriage as a major event in a human life, can be traced back to 'Vedic' times. Mostly Hindu marriage ceremonies are elaborate ones and they may last for a few days especially among those who are wealthy enough to afford the same. As part of wedding rituals, the bride and groom look at the Sun, Moon and stars and ask them to witness their wedding. They promise each other that their love and devotion will as steadfast as the stars in the firmament. They also take the relationships between such great couples as Arundhati and Vashistha as role models for themselves. These two form part of the star system known as the seven sages. Arundhati is the only female, who is allowed to sit in the council of the seven sages due entirely to her wisdom and steadfast devotion to Vashistha, according to 'Vedic scripture'...!
