A large majority of people in our country still seem to believe in the conventional marriage judging by the contents of numerous marriage proposals advertised in the national weeklies these days.
Parents choosing a life partner
In most of these cases, it is the parents who seek a partner for their son or daughter and they invariably make it a point to mention their ethnicity, religion and caste indicating preference for a bride or a bridegroom from the same community.
Parental initiative takes a back seat
However, there is a growing trend among parents to allow leeway for their children to marry a partner of their choice regardless of ethnic, religious or caste compatibility. Very often, nowadays young men and women meet and fall in love and later seek parental consent to tie the knot. While, the inter-caste and inter-racial marriages are on the increase now, yet another type of unconventional marriage has entered the equation: either a love relationship or marriage with a foreigner.
Foreigners turning bridegrooms
The local- foreigner relationships have begun to increase of late with more and more foreign nationals visiting the country as tourists, investors, and resource personnel on foreign-funded development projects. Another factor contributing to the increase of this type of unconventional marriage is more and more Sri Lankans securing employment in Mid-east and in certain developed countries mostly in the West.
Our present purpose is to discuss the Astrological factors that lead to a local marrying a foreigner throwing all conventions to the four winds.
Rahu’s role in unconventional marriages
Vedic Astrologers credit Rahu, the shadow planet with causing unconventional marriages, those with foreigners in particular.
Rahu, in fact, is believed to be playing an important role connecting a native with everything foreign. Rahu also plays a major role in timing the unconventional marriages. For instance, a marriage with a foreigner would take place either in the major Dasa period of Rahu or in his sub-Dasa period in the major Dasa lord of the 7th House.
