Manglik marry a Non Manglik? 

Can a Manglik marry a Non Manglik?

This is the question, the answer to which is not quite straightforward. There are various permutation combinations which need to be assessed before answering this question. Yes in some of the cases, Manglik girl can marry a non Manglik boy and similarly Manglik boy can marry a non-Manglik girl. But it is very important to first analyze the two horoscpes and it needs to be seen whether the effect of the dosha in one’s horoscope is mitigated or reduced to a great extent by the positive placement of other planets in the horoscope.

There are a lot of ill conceived notions related to “Mangal Dosha”. Mars is the planet of aggression, war and conflicts. It is an hostile planet and there anyone who is Mangalik should marry a Mangalik to nullify this dosha. The Mangalik dosha, which is also known as Chevvai dosha or Kuja dosha, is checked before ceremonializing marriage. A stable marriage depends on several factors like health and longevity of partners, mutual understanding, sexual compatibility, financial stability, and progeny prospects. But the most important thing is the attribute of patience. This is what maintains a relationships table more than anything else. And since Mars is the signifier of aggression and violence, you see why Mangal Dosha is given so much heed in Vedic Astrology when it comes to compatibility.

Now coming to the question whether a Manglik can marry a Non-Manglik, there are certain things that can help determine the answer dependent upon the individual case.

Presence of Mars in 7th or 8th house is considered most unfavorable for marital happiness. And if any one or more out of planets such as Saturn, Rahu, Ketu or Sun are also conjunct Mars, the combination becomes more severe and can result in loss of husband, separation and/or friction in marriage. On a positive note, this means that if Mars occupies 1st, 2nd, 4th or 12th house, the dosha is not as damaging. Even if Mangal Dosha is present in 7th or 8th house, there are Vedic remedies that can attenuate the effect.

Furthermore, Mangal dosha is calculated from three points –natal Moon, ascendant and Venus. Mars in 1,4,7,8,12 houses constitute the Mangal/Manglik dosha. South Indians also consider Mars in 2nd for this Dosha.

The reason these houses are related to household happiness in the chart.

  1. Mars in 1st makes someone very aggressive.
  2. Mars in 2nd would make one aggressive and dominating in family and speechand spoil domestic happiness.
  3. Mars in 4th would spoil atmosphere of the house by disputes and aggression of the individual having such mars.
  4. Mars in 7th would give excess sexual appetite as 7th rules marriage, marital harmony and sexual pleasures. This would make more hungry for sex which could spoil the marriage by giving him an animal instinct, forcing his partner intosex for his pleasures etc.
  5. Mars in 8th could give danger to life or sudden death, injury by weapons,problems with in-laws, as it aspects 2nd from there it will also affect family happiness.
  6. Mars in 12th would give bad health to wife and excessive sex appetite and spend thrift attitude.
