The basic characteristics of marriage line as per palmistry depend on the length of these lines. Like for instance, longer marriage line indicates that the relationship will be longer. Secondly, if the marriage line is leaning towards the Heart line then it indicates demise of the partner. Further, a gradual incline towards the line of heart depicts that the death of partner after enduring illness. If the marriage line is bending upwards then chances are there that the person could stay single. Palmistry also states that the closeness of the marriage line to the heart line shows the marriage age of a person. If the marriage line is closer to the line of heart then it means early age of marriage.
The colour of the marriage line also indicates several aspects of a relationship. Deep line indicates good relationship. However, it should not be too deep or too broad as it shows a sprain in married relationship and a diminishing affection. A broken line means divorce and separation. If the marriage line is broken with overlaying remains indicates separation of the couple followed by meeting.
