Verb ‘marry’ के साथ preposition ‘to’ का प्रयोग करना चाहिए अथवा ‘with’ का (Explained in Hindi)

1. Verb ‘marry’ का अर्थ किसी से शादी होना होता है और इसका use active voice में होता है तो इसके साथ कोई preposition use नहीं होता; अर्थात इसके साथ आप न ही तो preposition ‘to’ का use कर सकते है और न ही ‘with’ का और न ही किसी अन्य preposition का; जैसे

INCORRECT: He married to an Indian.
CORRECT: He married an Indian.

INCORRECT: Sonika is going to marry with Rohan.
CORRECT: Sonika is going to marry Rohan.

INCORRECT: He presented a ring to the woman and asked her to marry to him.
CORRECT: He presented a ring to the woman and asked her to marry him.

NOTE: दूसरे शब्दों में कहा जा सकता है कि verb ‘marry’ एक transitive verb होती है; अर्थात इसके साथ सीधे ही कोई object आता है; न कि कोई preposition.

2. Preposition ‘to’ का use ‘married’ के साथ ही किया जा सकता है वो भी जब इसको Passive Voice में use किया गया हो; अथवा शब्द married वाक्य में एक adjective हो; जैसे

a) Ritu is married to Kapil.
b) I got married to Ram.

Compare:
a) I married Rajan. (active use)
b) I am married to Rajan. (passive or adjectival use)

NOTE-I: ‘Get married’ अथवा ‘be married’ के साथ preposition ‘to’ का use होता है; ‘with’ का नहीं; जैसे

INCORRECT: A girl shouldn’t be forced to get married with a man she doesn’t like.
CORRECT: A girl shouldn’t be forced to get married to a man she doesn’t like.

NOTE-II: Verb ‘marry’ के बाद preposition ‘to’ का use तब भी किया जाता है जब कोई व्यक्ति किसी की शादी किसी अन्य के साथ करवा रहा हो; जैसे

The priest married Jatan to Reena in the church.

NOTE-III: Verb ‘marry’ के बाद preposition ‘to’ का use तब भी किया जाता है जब किसी के माता-पिता अथवा उसके संरक्षक उसकी शादी के लिए किसी अन्य व्यक्ति को पाते हैं ; जैसे

Her parents married her to a tennis player.

इस सन्दर्भ में verb ‘marry’ के साथ जो object होता है उसके साथ ‘off’ का use स्वैच्छिक (optional) होता है; जैसे 

Her parents married her to a tennis player.
= Her parents married her off to a tennis player.

She was married to the local doctor by the age of 16.
= She was married off to the local doctor by the age of 16.

3. Verb ‘marry’ के साथ preposition ‘with’ का use सिर्फ किसी की सहमती पाने के लिए ही किया जाता है; जैसे

I will marry with the consent of my family.

Which preposition should be used with the verb ‘marry’ (‘to’ or ‘with’) — Explained in English

1. When ‘marry’ means ‘to become the husband or wife of somebody’, and its use is in the active voice it’s used without a preposition (you cannot use ‘with’ or ‘to’ or any other preposition after it in this use); e.g.

INCORRECT: He married to an Indian.
CORRECT: He married an Indian.

INCORRECT: Sonika is going to marry with Rohan.
CORRECT: Sonika is going to marry Rohan.

INCORRECT: He presented a ring to the woman and asked her to marry to him.
CORRECT: He presented a ring to the woman and asked her to marry him.

NOTE: In other words you can say ‘marry’ is a transitive verb, means it has an object. So, you should not say ‘I married with/to someone’.

2. We use ‘to’ after ‘married’ (not after ‘marry’), that too when ‘married’ is an adjective or in the passive use; e.g.

a) Ritu is married to Kapil.
b) I got married to Ram.

Compare:
a) I married Rajan. (active use)
b) I am married to Rajan. (passive or adjectival use)

NOTE-I: Don’t use the preposition ‘with’ after ‘get married’ or ‘be married’. Use ‘to’; e.g.

INCORRECT: A girl shouldn’t be forced to get married with a man she doesn’t like.
CORRECT: A girl shouldn’t be forced to get married to a man she doesn’t like.

NOTE-II: ‘To’ after ‘marry’ is also used when somebody performs a marriage ceremony of somebody with other; e.g.

The priest married Jatan to Reena in the church.

NOTE-III: ‘To’ after ‘marry’ is also used when a parent or guardian finds a husband or wife for his/her ward, e.g.

Her parents married her to a tennis player.

3. ‘With’ after ‘marry’ can be used in the sense like this only:

I will marry with the consent of my family.

4. Marry off

When we mean to find a husband or wife for someone we use ‘off’ with ‘marry’; e.g.

i) They tried to marry their daughter off to a doctor.
ii) She was married off to the local doctor by the age of 16.
iii) The father seems relieved as he has married off both of his daughters
