kundli matching

Do Kundlis Really Matter?

Love Marriages or Arranged Marriages, one tradition that is followed like a basic marriage rule is that of matching the kundlis of the bride and groom. We may be in the 21st century today, but in our country match-making via kundlis has always had a lot of importance. The minute we talk about Kundlis, terms like guna and dosh surface in our mind. But, the question I ask you today is, ‘Are Kundlis still an important part of marriage ceremonies?’ Do partners really live successfully, and most importantly happily, after getting their Kundlis checked before marriage? Does a 36 guna matched kundli guarantee that the husband and wife will love each other forever and never face any problems? Does it guarantee that the husband will never hurt her physically or mentally? The question is open… and requires your answer.

Reality Check!!

Today, the number of inter-caste marriages and love marriages has gone incredibly high. People prefer partners they already know or who share the same work-front. And so, matching kundli seems like an obstacle in bringing together two people who really love each other. There are perhaps millions of people who get married without any interference of their kundlis or horoscopes. And guess what… they have a happy life.

Remember the movie ‘Lage Rahoo Munnabhai!’? The movie was a big hit and had beautifully showcased the matter of kundali dosh and how the handsome groom, Abhishek denies the kundli dosh of his wife and marries her. So, does this even happen in real life?

Here are some examples of celebrities who live a beautiful married life, regardless of whether their kundli matched or not!

Aishwarya and Abhishek



Born a mangalik, Mrs Aishwarya Rai Bachhan is one of the most beautiful women in the world. But, very few people knew that she is a mangalik. So, before she got married to Abhishek, did she secretly marry a peepal tree as a solution for being Mangalik? Well, we don’t know about that but, we all surely know that she is now happily married and is blessed with a beautiful daughter.

They fell in love at a tender age of 18 and there is no way Kundli and horoscopes mattered here. This was a marriage between a Hindu Brhamin girl and a handsome Muslim boy. And, without doubt, they have lived their marriage fighting all odds.

Shilpa shetty and Raj Kundra



Shilpa Shetty is one of the most famous Bollywood actresses. But on a personal front she has had a bad luck with her past relations. However, when she met Raj Kundra, things changed and the two decided to tie the knot, irrespective of all the other speculations that surrounded them, including the drama created by Raj’s ex-wife. So, once you have decided your partner, does Kundli really matter?

Question of the Day: Have you ever thought why only Hindus suffer from Kundli dosh and not others?
