How Astrology Predicts Longevity of Marriage
Marriage is a sacred institution and its also a once in a lifetime commitment for everyone. A lot of forethought goes into selecting the right partner and ensuring that the bond is forever. While some people prefer to tie the knot with someone they have known for a long time, others put their faith into the system of an arranged marriage, and settle down in life. They say marriages are made in heavan and when we see couples who have lived together through thick and thin, perfectly complementing each other, the statement comes true. Can anything be predicted about the outcome of marriages beforehand? Logically it’s not possible. Unless you marry someone and start living with them, the outcome cannot be understood. However, there is a glimpse of the future and an answer to this question in astrology.
