Do You Have Marriage Lines?

You are now either hoping you do or don’t have these mysterious Marriage lines. Either you’re single or coupled and either you’re happy or unhappy about your status.

Relationships are so often convoluted and confusing and you might have noticed that you base a lot of your self-esteem on your relationship situation.  You might even think that “everything” will be “better” when you are “finally” married.

Is it true?

My experience has shown me that getting married can exacerbate every single insecurity I ever had. My two marriages taught me that all those cliches are true – you really OUGHT to be whole before you marry another person.  I learned that you can’t lump your worth into the basket of how well you “fix” him (or her).  Falling in love with potential just wasn’t the wisest move for me.

You might have a completely different experience. I have friends that started dating in High School and they’re happily married to this day. I suspect that seeing his potential at 16 led her to want to live up to the potential he saw in her.  Sometimes that happens too.

We each have our own stuff and experiences to learn from here on Earth. Whether you fall in love, marry and live happily ever after with your high school crush or not, your relationship story is part of the way you become whole.

Does that mean you can rely on the fortune-teller who told you that you have no marriage lines to mean that you will be alone for the rest of your life?

Nah.

First off,  your lines can and often do change. Especially those little lines.  Secondly, don’t be one of those people who says you want to claim your free will and then starts a self-fulfilling prophecy based on a statement from a stranger you paid 20 bucks when you were slightly buzzed on a Friday night out with your friends.

Here’s the deal.

Some people have tons of lines in their hands. There are lines EVERYWHERE you look.  Other people have three lines that you can easily see.  That’s just how they’re made. Just like your eye color, skin color or shape of your toes – you were made that way. Don’t fret. It’s perfectly you.

When someone presses me to tell them if they have marriage lines I tell them I’d rather talk about the way they show up in relationships and their expectations of others. Then we’ll review their Mercury (Pinky) finger, heart line, and other places in the palm that speak to communication savvy, boundaries and people skills.  We’ll also review areas in the hand to look at how open they are to change and how willing they are to trust and surrender control.  These pieces of their hard-wiring clue us in on how open they are to a relationship, how realistic their expectations are and how likely they are to really show up in a great partnership.

After a decade of reading hands I know that everyone is capable of love and that love is a universal need. Your hands have shown me that partnerships are always meaningful and that “forever” isn’t always what the fairy tales told us. A relationship can have meaning for us throughout our lives, even if we’re not physically still together. In a way that’s forever.

Instead of asking if you have Marriage Lines, ask yourself who you’d have to be to be in a madly passionate, committed and joy-filled union.  Get clear on whether marriage is or is not an institution that floats your boat.  Then be the person you’re meant to be now.  No more waiting to see what “fate” has in store.  Go out and love and ignore the fortune-tellers trying to scare you or assuage you.  Be you.

    may i suggest that if only whole people got married Peggie there would be no marriages…after 35 years research it appears to me we come here , as we are, for a reason/purpose . goodness knows what that is for most of us . i don’t know anything it’s just what has come through epecially from peoples near-death experiences etc .
    anyway now to my story …i have no marriage lines and never have had as far as I’m aware , but have been married twice , have 3 sons and 6 grandkids . also had a defacto r’ship for 8 years …and intend to marry my girlfriend .please enlighten me
    also cannot find anything about my particular fate line …it starts from my life line breaks just before my heart line, then restarts as a very deep line powering up to the saturn finger
    finally i have a low set strong long thumb with flexible bending back to wrist
    Have had a very traumatic life so far ….i’m 67 and very young looking for my age
    Cheers

      Hi Mike!
      Thanks for writing. yes, marriage is an interesting beast. The old time palmists refer to the fate line and I prefer to call it the Saturn line – as it relates to all things Saturnian. Without seeing your line it’s hard to give an accurate description but from what you describe it seems that your security/money/time beliefs are intertwined with those of your family. i.e., you take a job that seems like it would be suitable in the family mind (usually family of origin) and then you power through until you feel your heart isn’t “in it” so you quit, or pull back or switch gears. Eventually though you manage to pull the train into the station and get the job done, as it were.
      Your flexible thumb, is like most things in the hand, “some good, some challenge” the flexibility means you’re generally a flexible person and may even believe the mantra “live and let live.” However, you may also find yourself bending over backwards to make things happen for others at your own expense.
