The adult native is typically an attorney solicitor barrister advocate counselor advisor negotiator deal-maker match-maker.
If spouse is also in the contract-making line of work, much wealth in the partnership and the happiness derived mainly from "talking shop" within the family.
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.
Budha-7 = wealth embedded in the original marital estate therefore the urge to dissolve the partnership solely on basis of sexual fluidity is much reduced by attachment to the money.
Budha-7 may remain formally married while experimenting with other intimate arrangements.
Due to a variety of the dictum karako bhavo nashto (matters of the house are damaged by the residency of the karaka for those matters) :
When Budha = sexual communication = bhava-7 = mating, genital sexuality = the result may be that sexual enthusiasm sometimes fades out unless Budha occupies Mithuna (or some other additional planetary boost to the animal instincts).
Also enhanced proclivity to engage in extramarital hook-ups even while the marriage is idiomatically talkative in a cheerful and habitual family style. Married partners may telephone, email, or speak several times each day as a custom, thus the extramarital connections are often unsuspected the partners.

Kuja is the worst enemy of Budha (worse than Chandra)
Deal-maker. Commercial success in the world of crafting detailed agreements, making trades, articulating and keep terms of contract. Most types of partnership are interesting and auspicious. (With special favor granted to those partnerships which are engaged in activities signified by Budha's lord.)
Spouse = also analytically minded, and spouse likes to talk. Karaka for marriage to a lawyer or counselor. Sexually knowledgeable, but the libido is sensitive to the mental workload. Generally favorable for good sexual and verbal communication in marriage.
"If Mercury is in its own house in the 7th house or in the 7th amsha,
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.
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.
However normally Budha in bhava-7 is good for partnership communication, and beneficial for trading in information, documents, concepts and ideas, plans, adolescent items, and all types of advising.
Where the Thoughts do Linger
The bhava which is 3rd-from-Budha also creates a "landing pad" upon which the thoughts tend to dwell and linger.
Naturally, if graha occupy this "focus" bhava, the nature of the repeating narrative engagement with those thoughts will adjust according to the character of the tenant graha.
thoughts focus upon third-from-Budha = dharma bhava-9

~~ Bhrigu Sutram
Ch. 4 Shloka 48-56
"If Mercury is in the seventh house and the lord of the seventh is weak or is situated in a malefic house or in conjunction with malefics like Mars, Saturn, Rahu or Ketu, there will be loss of spouse.
In a female horoscope the above disposition will cause loss of spouse and the native herself will suffer from leprosy and will be ugly in appearance ."
Das /Behari says of Budha-7:
[BPL note: spousal qualities may vary with the rashi of Budha. Spouse's family history is best seen through 2nd-from-7th. Female spouse family = 2nd from Shukra. Male spouse family = 2nd from Guru].
"... Mercury makes you very diplomatic, able to relate well with every type of person.
Your relationship with the spouse is as harmonious as with other business partners; the influence of the marriage partner on the attainment of social status is considerable.
... makes you attached to playing around sexually, or rather, you have a hard time making the marriage commitment for some reason.
If Budha does not conjoin the Sun, spouse is most attractive.
The spouse is comely and modest.
Vanquished in war and debate.
Large and aristocratic family of the in-laws.
" Mercury creates a kind of helplessness.
Marriage becomes merely a show of social respectability, while in private you may suffer from sexual debility and be unable to satisfy a lusty partner."
