Marriage Matching : Essential or Not

Marriage Matching : Essential or Not

S.R. Swamy

The marriages are made in heaven. It means the marriage has divine approval and blessings. Still one needs to look for the right mate, only then he can find the true life partner. Male and female are nothing but two aspects or two sides of nature. Hence it is natural for them to be united into a holy wedlock. In our country the marriage has been considered as a relationship which will last till eternity. It confers equality on both the partners in matters of DHARMA [ Right conduct], ARTHA [Financial position], KAMA [Sex relation] and MOKSHA [Liberation or emancipation]

The family is the fundamental unit of the society. This unit is facing great danger today. More or less it is in a state of disintegration with more broken families everywhere. Reason for this sad state of affairs can be traced to the increasing fragility of marriages around the country.

Divorce, separation and single parenting are main problems in the society, which have damaged the happiness of young couples. Stable married life can be achieved through proper analysis of horoscopes of bride and groom before the marriage. This practice is in existence even today in most of the traditional families in our country.

Matching of charts for marriage is not an easy job. It requires many years of practical experience as well as a good understanding of the theoretical aspects of the Astrology. Many a time horoscope matching is entrusted to the family priest or a friend, who on the basis of Koota agreement [ Gunank Matching ] which is found in every panchang, either endorses or rejects the match outright. Such a snapshot approach to the intricacies of horoscope matching many times leads to disastrous results or brings a bad name to astrology.

In cases of marital disasters occurring in spite of matching the charts ( invariably done by those ill equipped to do it) this writer found that the reasons for the mishap were inherent in the charts themselves, and had been simply overlooked and not handled properly by the person who had done such matching.

Marriages are sometimes finalised without matching of charts. This is because of the wide ignorance amongst parents about importance of matching of charts and its role in post marital dangers are realised late. Sometimes matching is overlooked due to a strong prejudice against astrology . But both situations can be remedied by an open mind and diligent study of astrology.

A marriage is not an invitation for brute sense of gratification nor it is a civil agreement that affects only the partners, but also the parents, society and the country as it is the base for creating a healthy future generation.

To strengthen my above views, I am presenting 10 sets of horoscopes of couples where the marital happiness miserably failed in spite of the best Gunank obtained in the matching. Study of individual cases will reveal the truth about matching of horoscopes.

Gunanka obtained : 30

Note : This couple completed their eight years of married life but were childless because of male impotence.

Referring to above horoscope, we find that Gunanka obtained is 30, which is considered the best matching and the marriage is recommended. Unfortunately the male partner is found to be impotent. Reasons are as follows:

Male Horoscope :

A - Aspect of eunuch planets like mercury, Ketu and Saturn on 5th house.

B - Venus occupying Leo is hemmed in between malefics.

C - Saturn (a eunuch planet) being the Lord of 7th is under 9th aspect of Ketu which is another eunuch planet.

D - 5th house is occupied by malefic planets and the significator for progeny Jupiter which is also the lord of 5th house is conjunct with eunuch planets mercury and Ketu and aspected by malefics like mars and Rahu, which indicates that the native can not become a father.

E - Saturn is aspecting Mars in the main chart, and in navamsha chart Ketu and Pluto occupy 7th house which indicates divorce.

Female Horoscope :

A - Lord of 12th Jupiter has occupied 11th house (i.e. 12th to 12th house) which denies bed comforts.

B - Lord of 7th house Venus is hemmed in between malefics and 7th house is occupied by strong malefic sun (debilitated) and 7th is under the aspect of Saturn that denies conjugal happiness and gives discomforts in married life.

C - Lord of 7th house Venus is occupying 8th house and is hemmed in between malefics.

D - Saturn is opposite Mars in main chart, and Saturn and mars are in shadastaka (6th and 8th position) in Navamsha chart that indicates divorce.

Note : For an Indian family progeny is a prime issue and if the family is deprived of the happiness of progeny the couple faces rejection from own family and also from the society. In this case 30 Gunank could not save the married life and the couple got divorced after 8 years of married life.

Gunanka obtained : 20

These ten sets of horoscope of couples were analysed with the help of traditional astrological Yogas to find out the disturbances in married life. With the facts explained above it is understood that Gunanka matching is not the main concept in marriage matching and “Bhava Melapak” (Matching of Houses) is more important than gunanka matching.

In our country we are experiencing more and more marriage failures in recent years, due to one or the other reasons explained as above. If a proper matching could have been done in consultation of various Bhavas, to accertain the longevity, progeny, love and affection, conjugal happiness, adultery etc. the marriage would definitely have lasted long, whether the gunanka matching is in order or not. Out of my experience, I would like to emphasize that importance should be given to the points given in table while scrutinizing male and female horoscope for marriage.

If the above points are found satisfactorily in both the cases, the marriage can be happily recommended whether gunank matching is in order or not.

Before concluding, I would like to give the following important points which are the key factors for a happy married life.

1. If mars of the female horoscope occupies the sign of Venus in the male horoscope or vice versa. gives good physical attraction to both the partners.

2. If mars and Venus occupy same house in male and female horoscope there will be better physical attraction between the partners and both will enjoy good conjugal happiness.

3. In the male or female horoscope lord of ascendent posited in a kendra and aspected by benefics will give good marital happiness.

4. If there is exchange of houses between the lord of 5th and 7th or if there is close conjunction of lord of 5th and 7th the native will get a very good affectionate and lovable life partner.

5. Lord of 7th occupying its own house and aspected by benefics will lead to a good married life.

6. If lords of 5th, 7th, and 9th are occupying a kendra, the married life will be good.

7. The longitude of the sun in the male horoscope equal to the longitude of moon in the female horoscope will lead to good marital happiness.

8. Longitude of the Venus in the male horoscope equal to the longitude of the Venus of the female horoscope leads to good marital happiness.

If the above facts are taken into consideration the disasters in the married life can be ruled out.
