Delay In Marriage?

Late Marriage In Horoscope Or Delay In Marriage In Astrology

In my last article I dealt with astrology combinations which give problem in a marriage, now the current topic for today is Late or Delay in Marriage.

How to define late marriage?

Depending on countries and culture marriage age will change, in the western world, there are no set parameters regarding marriage age and you will witness a quite a range in marriage ages there. Whereas in Asian countries like India, getting married in the right age is a huge concern, especially for parents who make sure their children get married at the right age.

Now defining the right age of marriage is also a tricky part because every individual has their own reasons and they choose when to marry:

  • Wealth can be a reason where a person delays his marriage.
  • Education can also be a reason which creates a delay in marriage.
  • Health is a big reason where a person delays his marriage.

Now as per astrology our classics have given various Planetary combination regarding the age of marriage. These combinations I won’t repeat here since it will be difficult for readers to apply them, rather I will mention them in a simple manner along with example charts.

Planetary Placements For Late Marriage

As we all know for marriage primary house to be seen is 7th & its lord, along with that divisional chart D-9 should be given equal weight age. Apart from 7th house, the role of 8th & 12th house lord also has a significant role in timely marriage.

The condition of karaka for marriage i.e Venus for male & Jupiter for the female should be checked thoroughly.
Upapada & condition of Darakaraka should also be considered before concluding final result.

I have made a list of astrology combinations which can give delay in marriage:

1.Placement of 7th house lord from ascendant in 6th, 8th & 12th house.
2.Placement of 7th house lord from moon in 6th, 8th & 12th house.
3.Placement of 7th house lord from Venus in 6th, 8th, 12th house
4.Placement of malefic planets viz Saturn, Mars, Rahu, Ketu & Sun.
5.Combustion of 7th lord.
6.7th house hemmed between malefic planets
7.7th house lord hemmed between malefic planets.
