Marriage is regarded as sacred and solemn by all. According to the Hindu religious scholars and pundits, marriage is a perfect bond never to be broken under any situation. Therefore, divorce is never an alternative option when a boy and girl are bound through wedlock.
Marriage is a lifelong union and a serious mater. On the other hand, the parents of both the woman’s and the man’s family along with elders, relatives and friends make it an auspicious life for them. In this effort they consult panchangam for directly looking into the present and future life of the girl and boy who are about to be married.
It is to be noted that before giving a green signal for a marriage, panchangam should be thoroughly consulted. It is to be highly remembered that through astral science in order to avoid strife and sorrows in marriage, the temperaments and mental attitudes of the individuals contemplating marriage are well studied and understood to a great extend.
The main factors that are largely considered through the ten porithams are mutual affections, health, longevity, prosperity, harmony, children, fortune between the man and his beloved wife, their sexual and temperament compatibility. The marriage alliance is called off if the marriage alliance indicates incompatibility.
The ten poruthams are dinam, ganam, rasi, rasiyathipaty, yoni, rasi, vedha, vasya, mahendram and stree deergam. One of the important poruthams that is given prime importance by all before fixing marriage alliance is stree deerga porutham. Based on the panchangam, good (uttamam), mediocre (madhyamam) and bad (athamam) are fixed.
Stree deerga porutham is given prime importance by the families of both the boy and girl before fixing marriage alliance. In case stree deerga porutham isn’t matching then in certain cases the marriage alliance is called off with immediate affect by the families of both the boy and girl.
