Quite a few things make human life worth living in this world. A vital one among them is a good relationship. A harmonious relationship between couples or partners counts the most for a satisfying life. While a close association among family members, friends, colleagues, and neighbors play a significant role in healthy living. Hence, elders in India, who celebrate traditional marriages, attach great importance to the compatibility factor between the prospective bride and the groom. The process of finding out this concord between the two is Match Making, also known as Horoscope Matching or Marriage Matching.
In conventional marriages known commonly as arranged marriages, matchmaking is done primarily by matching the horoscope or Kundali of the boy and girl. The scale of agreement between the two charts will be the indicator to show if they can make a good pair and lead a happy life together. Also, this matchmaking will be the deciding factor in a marriage for going ahead with the sacred marriage ceremony and pronouncing the two as husband and wife.
Sages since ancient times have devised methods of assessing the levels of adaptability and adjustability between the two, through the matching of horoscopes. There are ten such factors of agreement in vogue today, though there seemed to be as many as 20, once. These are known as Porutham and more precisely, as Dasama Porutham, the top ten compatibility factors in the horoscope. These Porutham (compatibility factors) are assessed based mainly on the study of the Nakshatras or birth stars of the boy and the girl.
