They say marriages are divine bonds made in heaven. But nowadays, the increase in divorce cases, separation, and delays in finding a partner is very common in society. Every person is career-oriented, and marriage is secondary for today’s generation. It builds ego, aggression, and low patience, causing delays and unsuccessful marriages.

Along with these, there are astrological reasons as well that can be the cause of late marriages. The marriage astrologers provide a detailed analysis of a birth chart and look for the possible delays for the natives and how one can cure to have an early and harmonious married life.


The alignment of various planets decides the success of a marriage or a relationship. It’s the 7th house which is the lord of marriage. The Analysis of 7th house tells you about what type of partner you will have. Will it be a delayed marriage? Early marriage? Successful one? How many kids will you have? And many other factors on which a relationship revolves around. For males, it’s Venus, and for females, Jupiter decides at what age the native will get married. Strong Venus and Jupiter in the birth charts result in early marriage. And if there is a presence of any malefic planet like Mars, Saturn, Sun, Rahu, or Ketu in the 7th house, then there are strong chances of late marriage.


Malefic planets and how the 8th and 12th house influences other houses and planets to decide on the marriage of a person. 

Saturn- this planet can cause delays in marriage if it is related to the 7th house. The native may have to wait till age 35 if Saturn sits in the house of marriage.

Sun- sun symbolizes power and strength. If not placed favorably, it can weaken the native in decision making and delay marriage.

Mars- with mars present in the 7th house, there are higher chances of late marriages.

Rahu and Ketu– if both the planets are present in the house of marriage, the 7th house, the native will face troubles in marriage.

So, the malefic planets mentioned above will surely cause procrastination in marriage if misplaced in the birth chart of the native.


  • Saturn in, the 7th house, delays marriage as it believes in teaching and prepares the native to handle things better. The person should wait till the age of 32 for marriage.
  • Sun, if strongly present in the 7th house, works in contradiction with Venus and Jupiter and causes delays in marriage.
  • Mars’s presence is also not very considerate until the age of 28. And so are the planets Rahu and Ketu. It is also important that the weak ruling planet of the 7thhouse is not in the 8th house to avoid late marriages.
  • If the moon is in the 8thand 12th house and Venus and Saturn are connected, it calls for an extra delay in marriage till 35 years of age.
  • Uranus in the 7th house also causes delays even after the final date of marriage.
  • If Rahu is in the 2nd house and Venus in the 3rd, there are chances of delays in marriage.
  • If Venus is with a malefic planet in the 2nd house and the lord of the 7th house is present in the 5th or 9th house, then late marriage is predicted.
  • Moon in the 6th and 8th house and Venus inhabiting the 4th house leads to late marriages.
  • Mars in the 7th house also indicates late marriage.
  • If placed opposite each other in a birth chart, Sun and Saturn may delay the marriage. 

Apart from the planetary combinations, some various yogas and doshas may not be right for the native of a birth chart which delays the marriage.
