Does manglik dosha really affects if a manglik boy marries a non manglik girl? Ans. Marriages are said to be made in heaven but in India despite knowing this fact we Indians heavily rely on the horoscopes. Horoscopes are basically the birth charts prepared by our astrologers just after a child is born. These horoscopes contains 12 houses which are governed by the planetary movements of our solar planets and thus effects our life in various manifolds. Out of all the planets when “Mars” also said as “mangal grah” in hindi is present in the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th and 12th house of a persons horoscopes then that person is known as manglik. Manglik is not a dosha rather its just a prediction made by our birth chart. From decades long history, we Indians highly admire that manglik individuals cannot marry a non-manglik individual and vice-versa otherwise the couple may have to face ill effects in their life like divorce, death etc, but is it true? Who will prove this? If we go by the statistics also, I don’t find this relevant because if this is the case then do all army men killed on borders are mangliks? Or do all of them have married manglik or non-manglik girls? Now, going by the facts, as per astrological evidences it is said that mars or mangal grah is fierce and aggressive and is assumed as a symbol of energy and fire. So if two aggressive people gets married then obviously clusters will happen, because to lead a peaceful life one must be of quite compromising nature and when it doesn't happens then automatically quarrels and discomfort occurs. So, widow-hood, separation, divorce etc has nothing to with the manglik taboo rather its our own self who decides what to do, when to do and how to do.
