What is henogamy (version of primogeniture)?

Obligation to marry a widow by her dead husband's brother,
A woman who has several husbands at the same time
Marriage with two or more sisters.
The right to marry for only one member of the family.
Nambudiri Brahmin families practised a more strict version of primogeniture than Brahmin communities elsewhere in India. Under this custom, only the eldest son could marry a Nambudiri woman and thus produce an heir to the family property. Younger sons were restricted to sambandam relationships with non-Brahmin women, whom the Nambudiris considered to be concubines and whose offspring could not inherit.
