In India, the majority of weddings that happen are arranged by the parents of the bride and the groom. It is the parents, who first meet the girl and the boy, check out the backgrounds of each other’s family, and if they are satisfied, then the girl and the boy are allowed to meet each other. However, before the girl and the boy are allowed to meet, there is one more test which the couple has to pass in order for the talks of their marriage to move ahead. This is the test of astrology.
Ensuring Happiness of The Couple
Horoscope matching is extremely important in Hindu marriages. Most of the parents would not even consider looking at the bio data of the girl or the boy, if the horoscope does not match their child’s astrological chart. The first thing that Indian parents do, when they decide to start looking for a life partner for their children is to consult a good astrologer and get his or her horoscope made. It is a strong belief of the Hindus that their happiness and future prosperity are dependent on their stars and the same can be predicted with the help of the correct reading of the horoscopes. Therefore, it is only correct, that when taking a decision as big as marriage, the prediction of the stars should be understood.
Identify Personality Traits through Date Of Birth
Another very big reason, because of which many people consult these horoscopes, is that, the date of birth along with the time and place of birth can help in providing a good understanding of the personality of another person. Two people, who are born on the same date and time show very similar characteristics, like twins, thus, it can be easily deduced that out date, time and place of birth greatly influence our personality. Once you have a fair idea about the personality of another person, it becomes easier to know, whether that person would be compatible with you and your family or not. If the other person has a personality that is very different from yours, then you might have to make too many adjustments after marriage and still not be happy with each other. Therefore, a better option would be to not take things forward and not pursue the marriage proposal any further.
Compromising Is Necessary
In their hope to find the most perfect match for their child, many parents try to find a match whose horoscopes matches their child’s in the most perfect manner. However, finding a perfect match is not possible. Certain compromises will have to be made. Therefore, it is important that the parents carefully understand the horoscopes of both the boy and the girl, prepared based on their date of birth, and know exactly what are the personality differences between them, and if the same are tolerable, then they should go ahead with the match and if the differences are too many and with respect to those traits over which compromises cannot be made, then the proposal should be rejected immediately.
