Reasons for delay in marriage and remedies

The 7th house mainly refers to marriage, wife or husband and marital happiness. So any afflictions to this house or it’s lord cause delay in marriage and even sometimes denial.

If 7th house under influence of Mars by aspect or placement it give rise to manglik or kuja dosha. When Mars is placed in 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th and 12th house from Lagna or Rashi i.e. Chandra Lagnaone is said to be a manglik, but some astrologer consider this position of Mars from moon  and from Venus too.

Not only mars negative influence only cause affliction to 7th house but other aspect and placement of other natural malefic planets like Saturn, Rahu, Ketu and Sun also equally exert same negative results. Placement of 7th lord also determines the married life if lord of 7th house is in dushtana’s i.e. 6, 8 or 12th it also hampers one’s married life. Karkas of 7th house in males which is Venus and in case of females is Jupiter also plays significant role in judging the married life.

If karka of a house is placed in that house then it destroys the affects of that house, so when Venus is placed in 7th house of a male it is harmful for married life and if Jupiter which is kark of marriage in the case of females is placed in the said house then it cause obstructions in marriage and problems in married life.
There are few general combinations which cause delays in marriage which are mentioned below:

1) If Saturn is either in 1st, 3rd, 5th,7th , 10th from Lagna or Moon sign and if Saturn does not have beneficial houses.

2) A malefic in the 7th house, Saturn, or even Mars in own sign delays marriage.

3) If Mars and Venus combine in 5th , 7th or 9th house, but receive evil aspect from Jupiter.

4) If the 7th lord and Jupiter are aspected by Saturn.

5) Malefics in either side of 7th house also cause delays in marriage in this case 7th house comes under papkirti yoga.

6) If Lagna, Sun and Moon are under malefic aspects.

7) When 7th lord is posited in 6th, 2nd and 12th from 7th house, girl’s marriage is delayed. This is a powerful yoga for delayed marriage and is further strengthened when malefic associates with 7th lord or in the 7th house.

8) Rahu and Venus in Lagna or in 7th house or Mars and Sun in the 7th house with other afflictions cause delay in marriage.

9) When Sun, Moon and the 5th lord are in conjunction with or aspected by Saturn.

10) If the 7th lord, Lagna and Venus fall in barren signs viz. Gemini, Leo, Virgo and Sagittarius.

11) Venus conjoins Moon aspected by Mars and Saturn and the 7th house is not aspected by Jupiter or malefic in 1st , 7rh and 12th houses.

12) Saturn in 2nd, Rahu in 9th , 7th lord and a malefic in the 3rd house.
i) Girls whose marriages are getting delayed should do ‘Gouri Puja’ and repeat the stotram as many times possible before the portrait of goddess Durga Devi.

ii) If Dasha of a particular planet afflicts the 7th house of a native, he/she should propitiate deity to the planet and seek relief.
