What factors cause delay in marriage?

The delay or any other kind of problem in marriage can be seen from the birth chart. While explaining the reasons for delay in marriage by birth chart, the seventh house and its Lord attains the main focus. A weak and afflicted seventh lord and house may indicate problems in marriage. It may be delay or others depending upon the significations of the planets associated with them. Apart from knowing which house is responsible for delay in marriage it is important to know the responsible planets too.

Saturn – The planet Saturn shows slowness. So, if it is placed in the seventh house the native may face delays in marriage. 

Venus – Venus is a karaka of wife and the natural Lord of the seventh house in kalpurush kundli. Its position is very important in determining the delay in marriage. If it is weak in its debilitation or inimical sign or even if it is combust, the native face problems in getting married. Such natives if get married face lots of troubles in their married life.

Jupiter – If Jupiter is in fall in the horoscope, the native is likely to face problems in his/her marriage.

It is very important to rectify the energy of a weak Jupiter.

Sun– The Sun is known to have separating tendencies and if it is present in the seventh house, the native face troubles in marriage. The malefic energy of the Sun is detrimental to marital bliss in someone’s life.

Saturn with other malefic planets – Saturn alone may create less trouble but if joined by other malefic planets like Rahu, Ketu and Mars may cause a lot of troubles and delays in marriage.  

The placement of the seventh Lord – The placement of the seventh Lord is important. If it is in any of the duhsthaana or bad houses like 6th, 8th or 12th, the person face major issues in marriage.

About Dr Vinay Bajrangi

Can anyone change the Horoscope? No, not even its creator the Brahma. Then what is that the astrology can or how can astrologers help us. My 2 decades exposure with a PhD in Astrology make me say that Horoscope is a direct manifesto of our Past Life Karmas which have gone past, fixed therefore cannot be changed. But there is something known as Gochar (transit of all planets in constellation like earth, sun, moon keep moving) Dasha which give us a chance to mould the results of the fixed planetary positions, allotted to us in Horoscope. That is possible through the Karmas of our present life (which are in our hand with manoeuvrability with a free will) and that where I preach that Karma correction with right guidance and at right time is the best way to extract best results with the help astrology. It is much better to control & play with your own free will than to desperately depend on mindless rituals later where you only pray to God help you with these rituals.
