Q.: If less than eighteen Gunas, like sixteen or seventeen, match, will it be proper to perform the marriage according to horoscope matching?

Findings of a research show that marks given to a happily married couple and marks given to a divorced couple have a difference of only two to three points. Thus matching of all the thirty six Gunas is not the parameter of an ideal matching and matching of less than eighteen Gunas can not be taken as the criteria of bad matching. If the position and aspects of the planets are correct, then matching of up to 15 Gunas can also be taken as right matching.
