The Gadhvi maintain community endogamy and clan exogamy. They have five exogamous clans, being the Parmar, Jadhav, Gohil, Leuva and Kabaria. All these clans are of equal status.
The Gadhvi were traditionally genealogists, but many are now small and medium sized farmers. Many are now also engaged in animal husbandry. A great number are now being urbanized, and taking up a number of urban professions.
