Abstract : This work is an attempt to elucidate the attitude of youth towards changing trends in marriage with reference to Patna. This research uses both abstract and empirical methods of study. It aimed to investigate first how modernisation had influenced Patna’s youth in terms of changing marriage trends, secondly, how easily inter-caste marriage is accepted, thirdly, the youth’s interest in the idea of a live-in relationship, and finally, how traditional beliefs have influenced the youth. Formulation of the hypothesis was done on the basis of factors which have led to a change in the attitude of youth towards changing trends in marriage.
The sources of data collection are primary and secondary.
Tools used for data collection include interviews,

questionnaires, and case studies. The sample size was 60, which consisted of males and females between the ages of 18 and 30 who were unmarried. Both employed and unemployed respondents were included in the study. For the analysis of data, researchers have used both qualitative and quantitative methods of analysis. It is evident that changes in the trends of marriage are readily accepted by the youth, but at the same time bound by traditional thinking, giving importance to both.

Keywords: Marriage, Youth, Attitude, Data, Patna, Changing trends, Traditional thinking, Inter-caste, Live-in relationship.
