Marriage is an important stepping stone in each person’s life. It marks the start of a whole
a new life with new people as a family. In today’s time, when marriages break due to the
smallest or silliest of reasons, Kundli matching, or marriage matching by name before
marriage can be considered as one of the best possible ways to prevent obstacles and
difficulties in the lives of the couple after marriage.
What is Horoscope Matching?
Horoscope matching refers to a process in which the prospective kundlis of the bride and the
groom are compared. As per Vedic astrology, Kundli matching is a kind of compatibility
analysis among various couples. There are various methods for marriage matching such as-
marriage matching by date, time, and place of birth and marriage matching by name. Since it
was not possible for everyone to know or remember their date, time, and place of birth, many
people remained devoid of such astrological benefits. Therefore, a new tool named marriage
matching by name was devised much later to help people in horoscope matching. The tool
of marriage matching by name is also based on the rules and principles of Vedic astrology.
