I am a Muslim girl and my Boyfriend of 3 years is a Hindu. We both met eachother 5 yrs ago and were in unhappy marriage. We decided to divorce our respective partners and get together as non of us were happy and were suffering.
In short, due to some family reasons neither of us got a divorce till date.
We broke up last year for 4 months and i really fell sick. He came back apologising and promised to marry me. To finalize our relationship he said we will go to Haridwar and decided based on what result we get there. There he took me to Har ki pauri - After Ganga Aarti, a pujari ji offered to do the pooja for us. Standing in Ganga River, Pujari ji asked us what was our relationship and my guy said we were husband and wife. ( i wispered what he was doing, as it was a sacred place, and he said nothing left - isn't that what you are). During the puja, the pujari ji asked me to wash my husbands feet ( i looked at my guy for assurance), he smiled so i did wash his feet. Then the Pujari asked us to hold Ganga Jal and recite some sanskrit vows after him, at the end he asked my guy to put the sindoor on my head and i refused (saying that this is one thing i would want the family to witness). Pujari ji said its not good for a married girl to stay with out sindoor, but we managed to give an excuse. After that everything went amazingly well, we visited all the Mandirs and My Dargahs..everywhere he prayed with me - and asked for eachother till death.
NOW the question is was this a normal puja??? Are we considered married - witness of the Divine GOddess???
I am stuck, unsure what the relationship is? Please advise as i feel really guilty and my heart says yes, but am not sure.
