Late Marriage : Shown below is the Horoscope of a person who got married at the age of 47 and divorced 5 years later. At the time of birth, the Dasha Balance was Sun Mahadasha 2+ Years. Rahu Dasha started at the age of 20 and ruled for 18 years (year 1982 - 1999).

Here, Rahu is posited in Ascendant itself and associated with Ascendant Lord Moon, 7th and 8th house Lord Saturn and Mars. 7th house afflicted by Saturn and Ketu conjunction. Ascendant Lord Moon is also weak because of conjunction with Ketu. The marriage did not take place during Rahu Dasa as the Rahu is the rival to Ascendant Lord Moon and the 7th house was completely affected.

Jupiter Dasha started in 2000. But, only in the year 2010, during Jupiter Dasha & Sun Bhukthi, this person got married as the initial Bhukthis were not friendly with Ascendant Lord Moon. But then, got divorced at the very start of Saturn Dasha in 2015.

Venus is Badhakathipathi for Cancer Ascendant and it is posited in Scorpio, 5th house (Puthrasthanam) without association of any other planets. As 5th house is afflicted by Venus and its Lord Mars is debilitated, this person was not blessed with offspring.

Also, if the 12th house Lord (Conjugal pleasure) and 2nd house Lord (Family) are associated either by aspect or conjunct or exchange, it is also an indication of Love marriage. If Rahu is also associated with the above combination, it will be intercaste marriage. It will be an inter-religious marriage, if Ketu is associated instead of Rahu.

Here, Jupiter is posited in Rishabam (house Lord Venus) and Venus is posited in Scorpio (house Lord Mars). Mars is posited in Pisces (house Lord Jupiter). Mars and Moon aspect mutually, Jupiter and Venus aspect mutually. Also, Jupiter aspects Moon. With the good association of Jupiter, Moon, Venus and Mars, the native marriage is Love marriage. The native married her Maternal uncle as the Jupiter (the planet responsible for marriage in Girl's horoscope) and Mercury (the significator of Maternal uncle) are associated. But, with the placement of Badhakathipathi cum Marakathipathi Mercury in 2nd house (Kalathra Dosha), they got divorced during Jupiter Dasha / Mercury Bhukthi (2017 - 2019).
