Marriages in India are largely based on Kundali Milan (horoscope matching). It is considered as a crucial step before making any final commitment to the prospective bride and groom. Although, not many believe in this horoscope matching ritual. But those who do, will not get their daughter or son married without matching the ‘gunas’ with their prospective partners.
Not many people know as to why the kundali of the bride and the groom are matched before the wedding is finalised. So, read on to find out the reasons behind this kundali matching custom.
Marriage, in Hinduism is considered to be a sacred union that the couple should not only abide by in this life, but for the next seven successive lives too. Horoscope basically reflects the positions of different planets of a person and their effects on his/her life.
According to shastras, nature considers man and woman as a single identity post-marriage. As a result, one spouse’s destiny, luck and fate influences the other. It can either do wonders or lead to a bad relationship. This is why, kundali milan plays a vital role in decoding the marriage compatibility of two people.
Guna or Ashtakoot, is one of the major parameters taken into consideration while matching a kundali. Altogether, there are eight gunas that are taken into consideration to test the amity between two people.
Each guna has different numeric points, which when added, sum up to a total of 36. The marriage is acceptable if two kundalis match with 18 or more points. Higher score means better compatibility.

Both the partners' mindset, behaviour, temper, interest and aptitude are predicted through kundali milan. This ensures a happy marriage. Also, the level of physical attraction is tested since marriage cannot survive if there is no feeling of desirability for each other. Moreover, the health condition of the to-be bride and groom is also a point to be considered. And, this too is revealed by horoscope matching.
Financial stability is one thing that every parent looks into when they get their son or daughter married. What will be the job prospective in the near future, how stable will be the couple's financial condition; and even chances of promotions are analysed through kundali.
Besides this, the other thing that is tallied is the adjustment parameter. Whether the girl and the boy can adjust with each other and their respective families or not, whether they can adapt to changing situations or not are part of the matching ritual.
Now you all know why elders generally talk about horoscope matching before a match is finalised. Above everything else, kundali milan is done to ensure that the newlyweds live a ‘happily ever after’ married life.
