If you have faith in astrology, then there is no doubt or question about how relevant is the horoscope compatibility for marriage.
Pythagoras, the famous mathematician, gave us numerology. John Kepler, the great astronomer and mathematician, also made many discoveries in astrology and said:
“A most unfailing experience of the excitement of sublunary natures by the conjunctions and aspects of the planets has instructed and compelled my unwilling belief.”
Can these great mathematicians and astronomers be wrong in one belief and right in another?
Extract something positive from astrology if you have a belief and if not, do research before you decide to reject it.
Each of the the eight factors of Ashtakoot Guna Milan for marriage has its own value :

so it’s like providing an umbrella in the rain as we cannot stop the rain but at least we can save people from getting wet in the rain.
Here is a great example of Load Rama:
Astrology is an exact science and Ram and sita marriage was 100% success, just having physical distance doesn’t mean a 'break up'? Their kids were proof of their success (righteous kids as father was)... I don't mean to say that you cannot beat astrology, you can if you are at that level of love and have some spiritual reason and power (which comes from sadhna any type) in this kali kaal you cannot get such humans frequently like they are one in millions.
The failure of predictions could be because they are wrongly interpreted by astrologers or incomplete and wrong birth information (date and time) given.
Secondary taken as an advisory measure bearing in the mind rather than totally getting dependent on its other astrological aspects, social and circumstantial conditions like matching the boy and girl’s kootas viz. gotra, family, education, habits, riches, health and age also be equally considered in the totality of the horoscope.
Now a days it’s being so easy that you can check horoscope compatibility online and services are provided by many top astrologers and get accurate prediction.
