Hanuman JI Marriage History:


There are different stories of Hanuman's Marriage found in different religious texts .  If you are specific about knowing about what it is believed in Hinduism here is the answer.


1. According to the Writings of Sage Parasara , When hanuman approached Lord Surya to Learn Grammar  Surya says that it can be taught only to  Grahastha(Married Man)  and not to a celibate like Hanuman. Lord Surya Creates a women called Suvarchala with his Rays hanuman marries her in order to pursue his learning. 

There is another version of this which goes like this . After the successful completion of his education under his Guru Lord Surya , Hanuman asks him to order for a Guru dakshina . For which Surya asks Hanuman to marry his daughter Suvarchala . According to Surya  Since Suvarchala was born from the luminescence of Surya Hanuman being the Agni putra will only be able to bear her . He also promises Hanuman that his celibacy will not be disturbed and he'd remain a Brahmachari even after marriage. Hanuman agrees and gets married to his Guru's Daughter. 

2.  According to Valmiki Ramayan , Bharatha wanted to gift Hanuman with several wealthy gifts such as holy cows , fertile villages along with 16 beautiful wives.

 Here is the passage from Valmiki Ramayan 

 Valmiki Ramayana, Yuddha Kanda, Chapter 125, Verses 43 to 45: 

"देवो वा मानुषो वा त्वमनुक्रोशादिहागतः || ६-१२५-४३ 

प्रियाख्यानस्य ते सौम्य ददामि ब्रुवतः प्रियम् | 
गवां शतसहस्रं च ग्रामाणां च शतं परम् || ६-१२५-४४ 

सकुण्डलाः शुभाचारा भार्याः कन्याश्च षोडश | 
हेमवर्णाः सुनासोरूः शशिसौम्याननाः स्त्रियः || ६-१२५-४५ 

सर्वाभरणसम्पन्ना सम्पन्नाः कुलजातिभिः |" 

'devo vaa maanusho vaa tvamanukroshaadihaagatah || 6-125-43 

priyakhyanasya te saumya dadami bruvatah priyam | 
gavam shatasahasram cha gramanam cha shatam param || 6-125-44 

sakundalah shubhachara bharyah kanyashcha shodasha | 
hemavarnah sunasoruh shashisaumyananah striyah || 6-125-45 

sarvabharanasampanna sampannah kulajatibhih |' 

Bharata said Hanuman, 

"O the gentle one! Are you a divine being or a human being, who have come here out of compassion? To you, who have given this agreeable news to me, I shall give in return, for the pleasant tidings, a hundred thousand cows, a hundred best villages, and for wives, sixteen golden complexioned virgin girls of a good conduct, decked with ear-rings, having beautiful noses and thighs, adorned with all kinds of jewels, with charming countenances as delightful as the moon and born in a noble family." 

But hanuman didn't reply to this in the proceeding verses. So lose track of it there. :)
