Spouses may develop a sibling-style relationship. Either partner may express an openness to alternative pairings. Budha-7 may appear to have an ambidextrous sexual identity due to Budha's mercurial, fluent adaptivity.

Married partners may telephone, email, or speak several times each day as a custom, thus the extramarital connections are often unsuspected the partners.

(With special favor granted to those partnerships which are engaged in activities signified by Budha's lord.)

gives a learned and happy husband. "

~~ Hora Sara, Ch. 25, Shloka 40

A youthful and chatty spouse. Budha-7 is often an attorney or negotiator, one who represents the interests of others. Aids sexual communication. Busy-busy, gifted in handling information. Both partners are mentally active and usually engaged in profitable business.

Not good for Mesha lagna or Vrizchika lagna, where Budha becomes rogesha-6 +randhresha-8 . F

Mithuna lagna, the spouse becomes a twin: typically in the same business/profession as Budha-7, with very similar mentality.

For Kanya lagna, immature relationship behavior: spouse may be childlike or dull-witted, and the native who also lacks mental sophistication (because detailed-oriented Budha is overwhelmed in cosmic-view Guru's rashi) may belittle their spouse.
