In 2022, Kshama decided to adopt sologamy also known as autogamy. Sologamy is a concept in which a person marries themselves. It is a trend that people have been adopting in western countries for a while. In India, Kshama is the first person to adopt sologamy and marry herself. Her wedding is on 11 June 2022 which she will do by performing all the Hindu rituals at a temple in Gotri in Vadodara, Gujarat. Just like every bride, she has bought a lehenga of her choice and distributed her wedding invitation cards which only have her name.

After marriage, she has plans to go to Goa for her honeymoon. After news of her solo marriage came out reporters went for her interview and asked her about how she ended up with this idea. She said,
This idea was there in my mind since childhood but I was not sure if it was possible. Once I Googled, can I marry myself and that is when I got to know about the concept of Sologamy. After this, I thought why not marry myself.’
She was also asked why did she choose sologamy instead of marrying a man and she replied to this question by saying,
Self-marriage is a commitment to be there for yourself and love yourself unconditionally. It’s also an act of self-acceptance. People marry someone they love. I love myself and hence this wedding.’
