Whenever two Kundalis are matched for marriage, the most important Dosha that priests, pundits, & astrologers look for is the Mangal Dosha. People who have Mangal Dosha in their Janam Kundali are known as Mangliks. If you have any idea about what being a Manglik means, you should know that Mangliks cannot marry a non-Manglik person or person with no Mangal Dosha in their Kundali without going through proper remedial processes. Mangal or Mars in Astrology is considered to be a planet of war. But when we talk about marriage & domestic household situations, War with it does not seem like a good idea at all. If people with Mangal Dosha marry somebody without consulting a proper or experienced Astrologer before fixing the marriage, he or she is bound to face inevitable domestic quarrels, petty fights, betrayals, accidents, injuries, abuse, and even death. Thus, Mangal Dosha can be fatal too and that is why it is the most looked at for Dosha when talking about Kundali Milan for marriage.

According to Astrologers, if Mangal resides in a person’s 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 12th house, then Mangal Dosha is low. But if it resides in the 7th and the 8th house, then Mangal Dosha is high in terms of its aftermath & effects.
