Divorce: Can it be the Result of Wrong Match

Divorce: Can it be the Result of Wrong Match

Marriage is traditionally viewed as a joyous occasion, while divorce is often seen as a negative occurrence in Hinduism and other cultures. In essence, marriage is perceived as the start of a relationship, and divorce is viewed as the conclusion or termination of that relationship, akin to death.

In Hinduism and many other cultures around the world, marriage is viewed as a joyous event while divorce is typically considered a negative occurrence. Divorce is legally recognized as the separation of husband and wife, effectively bringing an end to the marriage and the vows they took during the wedding ceremony, particularly in Hinduism where the vows are taken before a sacred fire. The process of divorce varies depending on the society and culture in question.

In recent times, the frequency of divorce cases has been on the rise in our society. This can be attributed to various reasons, such as a lack of commitment, the erosion of social, cultural, and traditional values, and the tendency of Eastern societies to adopt Western cultural practices. Divorce is a highly distressing situation that takes a toll on both parties involved, leading to financial, emotional, mental, and social repercussions. However, the impact on children is often the most significant. Regardless of which parent is awarded custody, the child inevitably experiences the absence of the other parent, creating a void that cannot be filled by any other relationship.

What is the Role of Astrology in terms of finding the Possible Reasons For the divorce?

In Hindu culture, many families opt to match horoscopes before arranging a marriage. By consulting experts to match the horoscopes of the prospective bride and groom, potential problems that may arise after the wedding can be minimized. Typically, astrologers or priests only consider certain numbers when matching the horoscopes, and a minimum of 18 out of 36 “guns” need to match to satisfy the shastras and recommend the marriage. However, there are other crucial factors in the horoscope that should not be overlooked.

According to astrology, certain planets such as Mars, Saturn, Rahu, Ketu, and the Sun can have an adverse effect on marriage if associated with the seventh or lagna house, or their lords. Mars, in particular, has a destructive role if adversely positioned in the horoscope. These planets are regarded as separative planets and can play a significant role in making a marriage either heavenly or tumultuous.

Negative Traits/Impact of Moon in the 7th House

  • In some cases, having Moon in the 7th house may negatively impact relationships. Individuals should strive to accept their partner unconditionally, but this isn’t always possible, and emotional issues can arise. In severe cases, this may result in separation or divorce.
  • If a female has Moon in the 7th house, it may foster an intellectual inclination. However, her partner’s aptitude may be different, leading to discord between them. She may feel betrayed by her partner, which can erode their bond.

Combinations Mainly responsible for Breaking a marriage

If the Sun is positioned in the lagna or seventh house in an enemy sign, if Mars is associated with the seventh house or its lord, if Ketu is placed in the seventh house or has a relationship with the seventh house, if Saturn is in some way connected to the seventh house, or if Rahu is associated with the seventh house or its lord, this can have adverse effects on a person’s marriage. Additionally, if the dasa or antardasa of Rahu or Saturn is running or in transit, it may also impact the marriage.

Ultimately, those who faithfully follow their customs and religious beliefs and view marriage as a divine gift are often able to lead happy, fulfilling married lives. They are considered to be in good standing with God.
