Being as I’m an astrologer, I work with a lot of Indian people. Having Uranus in my 7th house and planets in Libra, I am interested in marriage of any type.
Some people jump over a broom and that’s it! They’re married. Indians adhere to their cultural tradition. A couple who wishes to marry must go through a series of tests over several years in most cases. It’s fascinating to witness.
At some point, when a couple decides they’re serious about each other, the parents on both sides have a formal meeting. It’s understood, deeply, if the couple marry, the two sets of parents will have to get along with each other. The parents on either side may withhold their approval.
You can see the stark difference between a situation like this, where a marriage is known to join the two families, as compared to two individuals who marry without family involvement.
How do you feel about marriage? Is it important to get along with your partner’s family and vice versa? What’s your 7th house look like?
