One of the biggest misconceptions and fears in the Hindu society with respect to marriage is the presence of Mangala Dosha or Kuja Dosha in the chart of a boy or a girl. I have seen a countless number of good matches being rejected by people just because the boy or the girl has Mangala Dosha present in the chart. There is a number of exceptions for kujadosha in Astrological scripts. So I will explain here detail about kujadosha and exceptions in this article.

                People who believe in kuja dosha think that a Mangalik dosha  will cause his/her spouse  negative effects in the marriage life. Venus for men’s and , Mars is the Marriage karaka in a female  natal chart as per Astrology .Kuja dosha should be checked not only in Lagna chart but also in Venus and Moon Chart. before that , first we have to find out which is strong  in these three in his/her horoscope. Then judge the chart, whether kuja dosha is applicable or not.   
                Kuja dosha is most effect in child marriages .In early stage if the spouse will lost, leading the remaining whole life is very punishable and painful. So they consider kuja dosha very strictly. Present days there is no child marriages .So it is not applicable to modern life style, partially it applicable.
                If the mangal dosha is high effect in the birth chart , it may caused so many problems in marriage life and their life cannot be run smoothly. If it's  in highly malefic in charts it raised many problems. must endure hardships meted out by the spouse, and ultimately it may would lead to separations .
                According to Vedic astrology Mars is placed in the 1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 12 from lagna or Moon causes Kuja Dosha. Some authorities omit the 1st house and some others omit the 2nd house.  details of the percentage of Mangal dosha in each house. In 8th house the dosha is full, in Lagna 1/2, in 7th 1/4, in 4th 1/8 and in 12th and 2nd houses 1/16. 
                There is a number exceptions and cancellations of kuja dosh in vedic astrology scripts. Details of exceptions and cancellations as follows :
                No dosha if Mars is in its own house or exaltation house. No dosha if aspected by a benefic. No dosha if Tenth house having  very strong benefic planet. No Dosha for Leo and Aquarius signs.  No Dosha when Mars is in 2nd house, in the signs of Gemini and Virgo, No Dosha when Mars is in 4th house, in the signs of Aries and Scorpio, No Dosha when Mars is in 7th house, in the signs of Cancer and Capricorn, No Dosha when Mars is in 8th house, in the signs of Sagittarius and Pisces signs, No Dosha when Mars is in 12th house, in the signs of Taurus and Libra. Association or aspect (watch) of Mars with Jupiter and Saturn in certain cases cancels the dosha ,Retrograde Mars does not cause dosha, A weak Mars (e.g. combust, situated near Rashi Sandhi) loses ability to cause dosha. Mars Conjunction with Jupiter is also cancelled the kuja dosha. No dosha is applicable for Cancer ,Leo, Aries, Scorpio ,Sagittarius ascendants .  
                No kuja dosh is  applicable  for  these birth stars .Ashwini, Mrigashirsha, Punarvasu, Pushya, Ashlesha, Utra Phalkuni, Swaati, Anuraadha, Poorvaashadaa, Uttaraashaada, Shraavanaa, Dhanishtha  (some authors not accepted ) Uttara Bhaadrapad, Revathi  . 
If male and female both having same combination of kuja dosha , this compatibility is  acceptable  for marriage and the couple lives happily with Chilterns and comforts .
