A compatibility chart tells a lot about whether two people are suited for each other or not. Many couples break up due to lack of compatibility. So it becomes important to have relationship compatibility analyzed before marriage. There are ways in Vedic Astrology to assess the compatibility between two people for marriage.

Traditionally, Vedic Astrology uses the system called Kuta system which involves matching the Moons in the charts of the two people planning to marry and to see whether they are in general agreement with each other. Compatibility of the chart by analyzing the various areas of agreement between the couple helps them live happily in marriage.

Kuta is also called porutham or agreement. While considering a marriage alliance, it is the Hindu custom to match the charts of both boy and girl. It does not allow marriage to take place until the ten poruthams or kutas are studied and matched for the couple.

Ten poruthams or kutas are examined and a score out of 36 points is given. A score of 18 or higher is required for a problem free marriage. Otherwise, a score less than 18 would mean, the couple will not marry. Each kuta agreement is important and chart is prepared by taking into account the birth stars the boy and girl.

  • Dinam – This is considered very important for marriage. This agreement between the boy and girl denotes good health and prosperity.
