The 7th house in a horoscope primarily relates to marriage, spouse and any other form of partnership. The sign falling in the 7th house and any benefic or malefic influence of planets on it and its lord correspondingly affect the married life of the individual. From every lagna, the 7th house is directly opposite, the two have different characteristics (Fiery, Earthy, Airy or Watery) and their lords are not friendly. Hence some difference in nature and thinking between husband-wife is natural. Marital problems become unbearable when the 7th house, 7th lord, Kalatrakaraka Venus and Patikaraka Jupiter are severely afflicted. Besides the 7th house, the other houses concerned with married life are the 2nd house (family and longevity of spouse), the 4th house (home and family happiness), the 5th house (love and progeny), the 8th house (Mangalya or duration of married life), and the 12th house (bed comforts). Affliction to these houses, Kalatrakaraka Venus and Patikaraka Jupiter by Saturn, Mars, Rahu, Ketu and the Sun to a lesser degrees, create problems in married life in keeping with the nature of afflicting planets. Mars and Ketu cause bad temper, quarrel, accident and even death. Rahu causes confusion, unorthodox marriages, unfaithfulness and sudden short-cut in married life. Saturn delays, makes the married life dull and dreary. Sun causes ego clash. The combined affliction by two or more of these planets on marriage factors, without any favourable benefic aspect, makes married life problematic and in extreme cases the native is denied conjugal bliss or it is short-lived. Some shlokas from astrological classics highlighting marital problems due to malefic effect without any benefic aspect on 7th house, its lord, Venus and Jupiter are as under. कलत्रपो बिना स्वक्र्ष व्ययषष्ठाष्टभस्थितः। रोगिणी कुरुते नारी तथा तुंगनकदिकं बिना।। (Brihat Parasara Hora Shashtra, Ch. 20.2) meaning, "When the 7th lord is placed in the 6th, 8th or 12th house, and is not in its own sign, or in the sign of its exaltation, it indicates a sickly wife (spouse)." कलत्रे तत्परौ वाडपि पापग्रहसभन्विते। भार्याहानिं वदेत् तस्य निर्बले च विशेषतः।। (ibid, 20.16) meaning, "When the 7th house and its lord are devoid of strength, in conjunction with malefic planets, the astrologer should predict loss of native's wife (spouse)." षष्ठे च भवने भौमः सप्तमे राहुसंस्थिति। अष्टमे च यदा सौरिस्तस्य भार्या न जीवति।। (ibid, 20.42) meaning, "When Mars is in the 6th, Rahu in 7th and Saturn in the 8th house, the native's wife (spouse) does not live long." बुध सूर्यसुतौ नपुंसकारव्यौ..(Brihat Jatak, 2.6) meaning, "The conjunction or aspect of Saturn on Mercury in the 7th house leads to unhappy marriage, as these are impotent planets." नीचांशे नीचसंयुक्ते दारनाथ च कारके। कुस्त्रीयुतो भवेज्जातः शुभदृष्टि विवर्जिते।। (Sarvartha Chintamani, Ch. 6.39) meaning, "When the 7th lord and its Karaka (Venus) are debilitated, conjoined with malefics and are devoid of benefic influence, the native faces problems in marriage and gets a bad wife (spouse)." क्षीणे शशांके यदि पापयुक्ते दारस्थिते त्वंन्यकलत्रगामी। लग्ने सपापे यदि दारनाथे जातः परस्त्रीषु रतः कुमार्गी।। (ibid, 6.10) meaning, 'When weak Moon is located in the 7th house with Saturn or other malefic planet, the native is adulterous. So is the case if the lord of 7th house is located in Lagna with a malefic. सिताव्द्यसुखाष्टगैः खरखगैरसन्मध्यगे। सितेज्प्यथ शुभेतरेक्षियुते च जायावद्यः।। (Phala Deepika, Ch.10.1) meaning, "If malefic planets occupy the 12th, 4th and 8th house counted from Venus, or if Venus is hemmed in between two malefic planets or if Venus is aspected by or associated with malefics, the death of wife (spouse) occurs." कामे वा सुतभाग्ययोर्विकल दारो ऽ सौ सपापे भृगो।। शुक्रे वा कुजभन्दवर्गसहिते दृष्टे परस्त्रीरतः।। (ibid, Sl.10.4) meaning, "When Venus is associated with a malefic and occupies 7th, 5th or 9th house, the wife (spouse) of the native is disabled." "When Venus occupies the Varga(house) of Mars or Saturn and is aspected by either of these, the native is sure to have intimacy with the wife of another person." भार्यानाशस्त्व शुभसहितौ वीक्षितौ वाथकामौ। तत्र प्राहुस्त्वशुभफलदां क्रूरदृष्टिं विशेषात्।। (ibid, 10.7) meaning, "When the 2nd and 7th houses are occupied or aspected by malefic planets, there will be loss of wife. Similar result about the husband may be predicted from wife's chart when the 7th and 8th houses are likewise afflicted." नीचारिभस्थैर शुभैर्भदे स्त्री। पुंसोर्भृतिः स्थान्निद्यने धने वा।। (ibid, sl. 8) meaning, "If inauspicious planets in debilitation or inimical signs are posited in the 6th, 8th or 2nd house, the death of wife or husband should be predicted, as the case may be."
