26. Summary

The Spouse and children are the most important and vital associates for any native particularly in old age. The concept of family is complete with their inclusion only. It is the sincere desire of almost all natives (more prominently among females) to ensure well being and long & healthy life of their spouse and children. In this chapter various aspects related with marriage, married life & spouse (95 Yogas) and with children (79 Yogas) have been discussed with the help of 14 new charts. In some cases references have also been drawn to charts of natives given in previous chapters.
