Once you enter you remove your footwear, then you must say 'sat-sri-akal' or 'Vaheguru ji ka khalsa, vaheguru ji ke fateh' (more respetful greeting.) Make sure you don't say 'sas-ri-kal' as it is saying 'may your sister-in-law die.' Then you can enter the house. Remember however you speak when you are spoken to when talking to elders, as this is a mark of respect.

ANS#2: Dont say "SAS-RI-KAL" as it means "may YOUR MOTHER-IN-LAW die"

Sikh women don't have any certain restrictions to what they can or cannot wear around the house, or in general. There is not a large difference in attire between the two. Many Sikh women who have more Indian roots may wear a traditional Punjabi suit around the house. As far as head coverings, Sikh women can cover their heads with a chunni (or head scarf) or wear a dastaar (turban). Again, not all Sikh women do this, but it is common and a popular option.

Can a Sikh marry non-Sikh?

The Sikh Rehet Maryada (Code of Conduct) clearly states that a Sikh should only marry a Sikh. Guru Nanak Dev Ji (the founding Guru of the Sikh religion) says that a married couple should be one soul in two bodies. This is only possible if both souls share the same path to God.If the Sikh is non-religious, I suppose they can marry whoever they want. But if the Sikh in question follows their faith, they must marry a Sikh.However, there's nothing to prevent the other person from converting. Conversion is easy and accepted in the Sikh community.Yes, Sikhs can marry non Sikhs until the spouse from other religion respects Sikhism. To marry a Sikh the other person doesn't have to convert to Sikhism. Sikhism respects other religions and don't force anyone to convert. That's the beauty of this religion
