''By all means, marry. If you get a good
wife, you will become happy; if you get a
bad one, you will become a philosopher''
Marriage is one of the best relationships
one goes through during the life time.
Divorce is a state in which a husband
and wife discover that they do not have
compatibility or proper understanding
due to non co-operation of the other one.
Divorce is the fastest growing problem
in our society today. In these modern
times, there are a large number of
couples who don’t have a happy married
life. They all face different issues in
their marriages and most of them seek
advice from their lawyers for Divorce.
There is no classical combination in
astrology for divorce. But some points
need to be noticed while doing match
making of horoscopes.
Matching of the horoscopes of the boy and
girl is important for marital bliss. Proper
matching should ensure good marital life.
A proper way of match making is to check
the position of Moon, Venus and Mars'
position in the boy and girl's horoscope
as these three planets play an important
role in making marriage long lived. Then
check moon signs and ascendant signs. If
ascendant lords are in good relationship it
is good. Also check relationship between
Moon signs in the same way. 7th house
also have great significance in marriage
as it is the house of union between two
persons. It’s a house of marriage. If 7th
house have benefic influence then it is
good for marriage/married life but if there
is malefic influence then it can cause
threat to married life.
Marriage Conflicts Leading To
Separation & Divorce (between married
couple and couple without marriage)
The Natural malefic planets like Saturn,
Mars, Rahu and Ketu are the agents
of Divorce. Sun acts as a catalyst in
divorce cases when either it is placed in
ascendant or 7th house specially when
Sun is in enemy sign and aspected by
malefic then only it gives divorce else it
only creates a conflict and verbal words
about divorce. The houses 2nd, 4th, 5th
7th 8th, 11th and 12th are concerned
with marital affairs. When these houses
become weak and their lords associated
with or aspected by malefics, they signify
trouble in married life. When malefic
planets are placed in the crucial houses
like Mars occupying the 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th
or 12th house is sure sign of trouble. In
Vedic astrology a horoscope with Mars in
these positions is marked as “Maanglik”
which means one with Martian blemish.
This position of Mars signifies, divorce,
separation or death of partner if other
malefic influences are also there.
7th house is the house of marriage and
partnership. Venus is the karaka for
7th house. 6,8,12 houses are known as
malefic houses. Position of 7th lord and
karaka of marriage is most important
for marriage. If 7th lord or Venus is in
malefic houses and afflicted with malefics, separations may occur. If 7th lord is
debilitated and afflicted by malefics or
in close conjunction with Sun then also
separation may occur. When there is
malefic influence on 7th house or Venus
or Mars or 7th lord is hemmed between
malefics or in conjunction with malefics
then also separation may occur. 7th Lord
and Venus conjunction with malefics
is more important than aspect. This is
not for married couple only but also for
the people undergoing relations without
Mars also play an important role in
marriage. It is the significator of energy. Its
influence on 7th house is not considered
good. When Mars is placed in 1st, 4th,
7th, 12th houses it influences 7th house
and if there are other malefic influences
also without benefic aspect then it can
ruin marriage which can lead to divorce.
Mars' placement from Venus in those
houses also considered bad specially in
Kendra to Venus. Alongwith this, Venus'
position in gandmool nakshatras or in
Rahu nakshatras or in Sun nakshatras
also add fuel to this. Saturn's impact on
Venus is also not considered good. More
malefic influence on 7th house can lead
to divorce. Venus in conjunction with
Sun or Mars may also end up in divorce
if no benefic influence is there. This
position of planets and 7th house must
also be checked from Moon sign and
also in navamsha chart. From 8th house
happiness in marriage is seen, if it is also
afflicted by malefics it can lead to divorce.
8th house (quarrel, disappointment) is
found in support of divorce. 8th house (2nd
to 7th) is supporting houses for marriage,
in addition to 2,7,11 main houses.
Planets occupying the 8th house suggests
involvement of secret matters, secret
extramarital and sexual relationships.
Major opportunities for divorce are bhukti
period of Ketu, karaka for disconnection,
disorientation, lord of the 12th from
ascendant or Moon may also cause
12th from ascendant may cause loss
or detachment. A private experience is
dissolution of identity during the bhukti
of 12th lord if under malefic influence.
It is different from the dissolution of the
legal contract under the domain of the
lord of the 6th. 6th house lord and planet
influencing 6th house may cause the
spouse behave like an enemy, conflict with
spouse, agreements feel unsustainable.
In KP system, significators of houses
6,8,12,10 are to be considered for divorce
or separation from the partner due to
disharmony or difference of opinion. But if
quarrel is involved then 8th house is also
to be considered.
If there are more differences between
the points of ascendant and 7th from
ascendant, Moon, Sun, Venus problems
in married life are expected. Quantum of
problems depend upon the benefic and
malefic influence of planets on Venus,
Moon and 7th house and of course
Therefore, it is advisable to get the
horoscope analyzed and proper marriage
compatibility be done before going to enter
for the most important and sophisticated
institute of marriage.
Remedies can be done for malefic influence.
Remedies will mitigate the bad effects of
planets. Horoscopes should be matched
before marriage. Remedies, if any, in such
situations should be performed properly.
Actually, all these points should be taken
into account only at the time of matching
the horoscopes of both and before
marriage. After marriage, if such situation
arises, it is sometimes hard to rebuild
the relationship even with the remedies
unless there is some auspicious planetary
combination present in the chart.
Example Chart One:
In this example chart, Rahu is placed in
7th house. Mars is lord of 7th, placed in
4th causing mangalik dosha and the same
is under aspect of negative Jupiter and
Saturn. In August 2006 native got married
with his friend who he was knowing for 13
years. At that time dasha was of Jupiter
and bhukti of Mercury. During Ketu
anterdasha marriage ended in divorce.
Ketu worked as agent of divorce. After
that, native got married in March 2010
again during Venus bhukti.
In the above example chart-2 Rahu is in
7th house. Mars' position in 2nd house
is not considered good as it aspects 8th
house. Venus is placed in 8th house with
debilitated Moon 8th house is house of
secrets affairs & relations. Native had
some secret relations before marriage.
Native got married in Venus dasha and
Sun bhukti. It was love marriage in same
city. In Mars and Rahu bhukti native had
extra marital relations. Native had divorce
in Jupiter bhukti due to extra marital
