What do you mean by 'Indian culture'. Jinnah assumed different identities in various stages of his life. So was this normal in Indian Muslim culture, Indian athiest culture, Shia culture, twelver culture, khoja culture or Gujrati culture? Please clarify.
'Indian culture' encompasses monogamous and polygamous and polyandrous societies, endogamous and exogamous societies, patrilineal and matrilineal societies.
'Indian culture' is an amalgation of Indic faiths like Sanatan Dharma, Buddism, Jainism, Sikhism as well as non-Indic ones like Islam, Christianity, Zoroastrianism, Bahá'í and Judaism.
I will not go into the details of 100s of linguistic subcultures all of which have distinct matrimonial customs and traditions as it will confuse most of the members here
