Comment : Sambandham was a ceremony to establish the right to cohabit and acknowledge a sort of partnership between a man and a woman. Families arranged these, which did not depend on individual choice, though divorce could also be contracted. A woman could have Sambandham with a male of her same caste or of superior caste. But, Sambandham cannot be considered synonymous to concubinage. It was regulated because it could only be contracted after certain rituals for the brides, which were mandatory on the pain of excommunication.’
