Traditionally, the community members were into fishing and marine business. Presently, the community has educated men and women settled in different parts of India. Mogaveera grooms follow their own customs for marriages. According to the tradition, father or maternal uncle of the groom search for a suitable bride. Once the bride is chosen, both the families of both sides exchange betal leaf and aracanut. The tradition is known as 'Bachhire Poolu Pagapunu'. The Mogaveera bridegroom wears ornaments. One of the most important one is the Onty, a pair of special ear rings. The groom is also supposed to wear a tikki (ear top), gold chains on the neck, and gold rings on the fingers. Toe rings made of pure silver are also an integral part of bridal ornaments. The bridegroom attire comprises of a Kachha (underwear), dhoti, Kurtha (silken shirt), and a cap or Mundas (Petha). On the shoulder, the groom wears a Shaal (Shawl) which is placed like a cross-belt. This is woven in silk with zari border. Both bride and bridegroom must carry a small Kinni Katti with Gejje (small knife with jingles made of silver) and a few (five) betel leaves and an arneca nut all through the marriage ceremony. The 'Best-man' for groom is played by brother-in-law and the 'Bridesmaid' is sister-in-law. These positions are known to play significant roles in a typical Mogaveera ceremony.
