Horoscope Matching or Kundli matching is very deep and intensely rooted in Hindu society. Before entering in to marriage relationship an astrologer is referred to for his analysis of the horoscopes (match making) of boy and the girl. It is done to ensure a harmonious, balanced and healthy married relationship.
If we compare the success rate of marriages now a days as compared to olden times say for example during the last 50 or 100 years or more especially in Hindu society, we will find out that the percentage is decreasing drastically. Some would attribute this to increasing ego problems and a feeling of independence in human beings especially women.
During ancient time, our ancestors gave special attention towards the match-making criterion (suggested in our Ancient Vedic Astrology books) and always preferred to consult a good astrologer about married life of the prospective couple. Gradually, many people started neglecting the given principles and many young people started marrying their lovers without getting their charts checked from a good astrologer.
The result of this is unsuccessful marriages and marital discord. Now again, astrological consciousness about match-making is increasing day by day. More and more people are consulting good astrologers for match-making and usually it is done by referring to Melapak Chart given in any Panchang. This Melapak Chart is calculated on the basis of eight factors.
These eight Gun Milan factors are known as 'Kuta' and considered in order to judge the stability of married life for the couple. The Gun Milan or Kundli Milan points obtained in each of the Kundli match making test is distinct. However the whole kundli matchmaking test comprising of 8 points can produce a maximum score of 36 points.
The actual minimal scores are sixteen that decides the actual match is decent but Weddings aren't going to be proposed if kundli Milan final result down below 18 gun milan point. Generally a score above 24 point is not considered a good match.
