Should a bride and the groom consult an astrologer to know about the success of the match?
Marriage is one of the biggest decisions of your life. It’s success and happiness depend on a number of factors. But the hand of luck can never be denied in our marriage and life as a whole. Some people do and others do not believe in this ancient science. That’s a personal choice. But there are successful marriages on both sides of these schools of thinking. There are also people who consult an astrologer, take his verdict, and then take their own stand anyway.
For those who do believe or want to leave no stone unturned before making that big decision, here are some suggestions that could be of help.
Look into these before consulting an astrologer.
An important criterion is the competence of the astrologer. Consult an astrologer of repute. Someone whom your family or some other family, close to you has time-tested. An astrologer known to them for a decade or at least a few years.
Consult at least 2-3 astrologers for better clarity.
Online astrologers whom you don’t know at all, is a gamble left to you.
