Marriage and Relationships in Palmistry


Marriage and relationships are better known in palmistry through the lines of union. These lines of union need not denote marriage always, but can also indicate an important relationship in life. They can also indicate a non-sexual relationship, but mainly denote a partnership. These union lines originate from the side of the palm and move over the mount of mercury, above the heart line.

Ideally marriage or union lines should be straight,long and free of any breaks or markings. If the line of union tilts towards the end, then it indicates that the quality of the relationship has dropped. If this line forks, then it may foretell a divorce or a split.


A breakup in a relationship is basically represented by a break in the marriage line.

Every break shows the splitting up of the relationship at that period of time. But if the breaks overlap, then it shows that the couple that had earlier split will come together again.


Disappointment in love can be derived by carefully examining the heart line. Most of the short lines fragmenting from the line of heart towards the base of the palm indicate a loss of relationship. This just means that the person has to work harder at relationships in the future. A traumatic or bad relationship is represented by a horizontal line that connects both the heart and the head line. Here it can also mean that the person will emerge as a stronger individual and make sure that he/she does not repeat the same mistakes again.

Love at first sight

Love at first sight means that a person totally falls in love with another person after spotting for the first time. Here he/she becomes completely smitten with the other person.”Love at first sight” is said to be indicated by a star marking on the heart line.

Timing for true love

All the smaller lines fragmenting from the heart line pointing upwards represent a happy and compatible relationship. The timing is denoted by the point on the heart line from where these smaller lines originate.

Indication of a seducer/seductress

A seducer or seductress have many fine lines of union running from the side of the palm. Each of these fine lines are a representation of a short relationship. The main reason that a strong relationship does not develop is that there is no commitment or depth in it. It is wrong to assume that such people are cheating in relationships, they are just not committed enough.


Child lines are tiny lines perpendicular to the lines of union moving upwards. The child lines are present on both men and women. It is not necessary that the person will give birth to all the children depicted by the child lines. If the child lines split into two, then this could indicate the birth of twins.
