Why is the Marriage getting Delayed?

Reasons for Delay in Marriage

Before going to the remedies, it is always important to first get your horoscope analyzed.

  • First find out whether the horoscope favors marriage or not? For example, check for presence of Sanyasa Yoga.
  • The next step is to find out the reasons for delay in marriage.
  • Check for presence of Manglik Dosha, Kaal Sarpa Dosha, Paap Kartari yoga, Pitru Dosha, etc.
  • See whether there are afflictions to planets like Mars, Venus, and Jupiter and to the seventh house.
  • Examine the role of Rahu and Ketu in delay of marriage.
  • Also check whether the Dasha period is favoring or delaying the marriage, etc.

Remedies for Delay in Marriage:

The following are the practical yet effective remedies for those facing a delay in their marriage:

Astrological Remedies:

  • Those desirous of getting married should wear Gauri Shanker Rudraksh in red colored thread on a Monday.
  • The ill effects of Manglik Dosha can be nullified by donating blood on a Tuesday every three months. Do this only if your health permits.
  • Every Friday, do jal abhishek of Lord Shiva (pouring of water on Shivling) and chant the mantra ‘OM NAMAH SHIVAY’ 108 times.
  • This remedy is for females who are facing a delay in their marriage. Tie a piece of banana root in a yellow thread at an auspicious muhurat (auspicious time) and tie to your arm or wear it around your neck.

Vastu Remedies:

  • If there is any clutter under your bed, clear it immediately. Also keep the South West corner of the house litter free and clean.
  • A girl desirous of getting married should sleep in West or the South-West zone of the house.
  • A boy desirous of getting married should sleep in North zone of the house.
  • Avoid a water tank in the South-West direction of the house.

Practical Remedies:

  • Every Thursday, while bathing, add a pinch of turmeric (haldi) to your bathing water.
  • Schedule the talks of marriage on a Thursday or a Friday. Wear new yellow colored clothes on Thursday or white colored clothes on Friday.
  • Contribute or help — monetarily or otherwise — in the marriage of a daughter of a poor family. Kanyadaan is the best daan and contributing in kanyadaan has the power to remove obstacles in your own marriage.
  • Avoid using or wearing black colored articles or clothes at least till you marry.

Special Remedies:

  • If the marriage alliance keeps repeatedly breaking down the last moment, then do the following remedy. The next time you go for the marriage talk, take care to remove your footwear before you enter the room for discussion.
  • Also while entering the room, the prospective bride or groom should put that foot forward first which corresponds to the nostril from which he/she is breathing at that moment. It could be left or right.

Mantra Remedies:

  • This mantra is for females. Recite 5 rosaries of this mantra for 21 days.

“Hey Gauri Shankaraardhagi Yatha Twam Shankarpriya Tatha man Kuru Kalyani Kaant Kaantan Sudurlabhyam”

हे गौरी शंकरार्धागि । यथा त्वं शंकरप्रिया तथा मन कुरु कल्याणी । कान्तकान्तां सुदुर्लभ्याम ॥

This mantra also brings success in love marriages.

  • Shiv-Parvati Shabar Mantra: Choose the first Thursday of the Shukla Paksha (Bright Fortnight). You will have to chant 5 rosaries of this mantra wearing clean yellow clothes for 21 days. After the recitation of the mantra, offer some food items like banana, besan laddoo (gram flour sweet) to little girls or brahmans.

“Om Gauri Aave Shivji Vjahve, Amuk (boy/girl’s name) Kaa Vivaah Turant Siddha Kare. Der Na Kare. Der Hoya to Shiv Ka Trishool Pare- Guru Gorakhnath ki Duhaayee”.

“ॐ गौरी आवे शिवजी व्याहवे । अमुक (विवाह इच्छुक लड़के/लड़की का नाम) का विवाह तुरंत सिद्ध करे। देर न करें । देर होये तो शिव का त्रिशूल पड़े । गुरु गोरखनाथ की दुहाई ॥”


Be patient and be positive. The remedies should be done for at least 43 days unless otherwise instructed.
