Reasons for late marriages based on Vedic Astrology

Marriage is a very important aspect of one’s life. It’s not only a physical union of two people but also a spiritual and emotional union. There are times where we put in our best efforts for a marriage to happen. But it may not happen as soon as planned. Let’s discover the reasons for the delay in marriage according to Vedic Astrology. Based on the person’s horoscope the planetary positions and houses are one reason for delay marriages. 7thhouse is the main house for marriages followed by 2nd, 5th, and 11th. Planet Venus and Jupiter are karaka(responsible for) a couple to be successfully wed. If malefic planets like the Sun, Mars, Saturn, Rahu&Kethu are joined with Venus then the unification delays.

  • Mainly 7th lord is karaka of marriage, If 7th lord is weak, retrograded or debilitated marriage gets delayed.

  • If the 7thlord is posited in the 6thor 8th house and if the 7th&8th lord interchange their positions also results in delaying of marriage.

  • 7th lord conjunction with Saturn or Saturn aspects Venus from any house marriage gets delayed.

If Mars is positioned in 1st, 7th or 8thpositions it is called Anthya KujaDosha which is considered to be the highest form of KujaDosha. Because of this Anthya KujaDosha, the relationship between the couple may also get affected. If Mars placed in 8thposition, then wife and husband suffer a lot. If Mars positioned in 2nd, 4th or 12thplace it results in some physical in the form of accidents altogether forms a good reason for the delay in marriages.
