He started creating problems in the marriages of the other demi-Gods. He asked his vehicle, Rats, to borrow deep holes in the path of any God going to his bride’s house. This created a lot of troubles and therefore demi-Gods requested Brahma to come with a solution.

and got them married to Ganesha.

There is another legend regarding the marriage. Both Ganesha and his brother KartikeyaKartikeyaKartikeya
Kartikeya is the son of Shiva and Parvatiand is regarded as the commander- in-chief the army of the gods. Being the son of the supreme couple
(God of war and victory) wanted to marry Riddhi and Siddhi. To choose the best groom, a competition was set. They both were asked to race and who so ever will travel the universe and reach back first will be married to the sisters. Kartikeya started his journey whereas Ganesha took a round around his parents as he considered his parents the source of energy that sustains everything in universe. Thus through his intellect and devotion, Ganesha married both the sisters, even before Kartikeya returned back home. Ganesha had three children with Riddhi and Siddhi, two sons named Shubh (auspiciousness) and Labh (profit) and a daughter named Santoshi (The Goddess of Satisfaction).

Symbolism

Riddhi and Siddhi are not only considered as Ganesha’s wives but are believed to be feminine emanations of his androgynous nature. They are seen as the incarnation of powers Ganesha himself possessed. He is known as Rddhisiddhipravardhana (Enhancer of material and spiritual success) because of the same reason.

Ganesha is also called ‘Twam Shakti Trayatmakah’ meaning the embodiment of three powers i.e., knowledge, desire and action corresponded by Riddhi and Siddhi. Thus if Ganesha is present, Riddhi and Siddhi can never be far behind. Riddhi without Siddhi is nothing and vice-versa. If Ganesha is prayed to with all devotion and dedication then knowledge, materialistic prosperity and liberation can be attained by every devotee.
