Exogamy

Exogamy

Exogamy is a social custom which specifies individuals can only marry people outside their own group. This group is usually but not always defined through kinship or family, rather than larger groups concerning religion, race, or social class.

Exogamy is the opposite of endogamy, which recommends marriage within an individual’s own group.

Out-marriage is another name for exogamy.
