When does one become the husband in a vedic marriage

नोदकेन न वाचा वा कन्यायाः पतिरुच्यते |
पाणिग्रहणसंस्कारात् पतित्वं सप्तमे पदे ||

नोदकेन - न उदकेन - not on kanyaadaanam
न वाचा - not on giving the word (engagement)

The second line means, it is only at the end of the seventh step ( of saptapadi ) owing to the panigrahanam that he becomes the husband.
