Palm Reading: Signs Relating to Love, Marriage, and Children

The palm reading marriage line is a tiny line that has a huge impact on an individual’s life, and is easy to overlook. It is not as deeply etched into the palm as the lifeline or the heart line. One theory is that lines change during the course of a lifetime and the palm reading marriage line could be read differently at different stages of a person’s life.

What is called the Line of Marriage is that mark or marks, as the case may be, found on the side of the Mount under the fourth finger. To view the marriage line or lines place the palm sideways. This placement allows the best view of the marriage line that initiates on the outer palm and runs toward the ring finger. The marriage line is short and faint. Use a flashlight if needed to read the detail of the marriage line. The marriage line is located somewhere above the heart line and the base of the little finger.

The Line, or Lines, of Marriage may be found as very short marks almost on the very side of the hand, or they may appear as quite long lines rising from the side of the hand into the face of the Mount of Mercury, or, in some cases, going farther still into the hand itself.

Only the clearly formed lines relate to marriage, the short ones to deep affection, or marriage contemplated, but never entered into.

When the deep line is found lying close to the line of Heart, the marriage will take place early in life, but the other marks give more accurate dates as to when the event will occur.

For a happy marriage the lines on the Mount of Mercury should be straight and clear, without breaks or irregularities of any kind.

If there is more than one marriage line that reveals that the individual will have more than one marriage. The deepest line will represent the most meaningful marriage.If the line has a fork at its ends this represents that the marriage will end in divorce or death.

A marriage line that begins, has a break, and continues reveals that the individual will marry, incur some kind of separation, then reunite.

If the marriage line has parallel lines running next to it, this reveals infidelity. The person has a relationship outside of the marriage.

If the marriage line curves down and touches the heart line this represents someone that has heartbreak tied to their marriage.

The significance of the line is exclusive to the person and when meeting someone new, take a look at what their palm has to say before even considering saying the words I do.


When the Line of Marriage curves or droops downwards (3, Plate XVII.), the person on whose hand this appears will outlive the other.

When the line turns upward in the reverse direction, the possessor is not likely ever to marry.

When the line is clear and distinct, but has a lot of little lines dropping from it, it foreshadows trouble and anxiety in the marriage, but brought on by the delicacy and ill-health of the partner

When the line has a curve at the end, and if a cross or line be found cutting into this curve, the partner will die by accident or a sudden illness of some kind. But when the Marriage Line
ends in a long, gradual curve into the Heart Line, the death of the partner will come about by gradual ill-health or illness of a very long duration.

When the line has an "island" at the beginning, then the marriage will be for a long time delayed, and the two persons will be much separated at the commencement of their married life.

When the "island" is found about the middle of the Marriage Line, some great trouble and separation will take place about the middle of the married life.

When the "island" is found towards the end of the line, the marriage will most probably end in trouble and separation one from the other.

When the Line of Marriage divides into the form of a fork, the two people will live apart from one another, but when the fork turns downwards towards the Line of Heart a legal separation may be

In many cases a fine line may be found crossing the entire palm, from the Marriage Line, and in such a case the greatest animosity and bitterness will enter into the fight for freedom and divorce. In such an example there is never any hope of reconciliation.

When the Line of Marriage is full of little islands, or linked like the loops of a chain, the subject should be warned not to marry at any time, as such a union would be full of the greatest unhappiness and continual separations.

When the line, which is otherwise well marked, appears about the centre to break in two, it foreshadows a fatality or break-up in an otherwise happy married life.

When the Line of Marriage itself, or an offshoot from it, goes into the hand, and joins or ascends upward with the Line of Sun, it promises that its possessor will marry some one of great wealth or distinction.

When this above-mentioned line bends downward and cuts the Line of Sun, it denotes that the person on whose hand it is found will lose his position by the marriage he will make.

When any line from the top of the Mount of Mercury falls down into the Marriage Line, it shows that there will be great obstacles to overcome in whatever marriage the subject enters, but if the Line of Marriage is a good one, then such obstacles will be overcome.

When there is another line much slighter in appearance lying close to the upper side of the Marriage Line, it foretells some influence that will come into the subject's life after marriage.

All lines that cross the hand from the Mount of Mars, and rise up towards the Line of Marriage denote the interference of people with the marriage. These lines give the date of the interference when they cross the Line of Destiny; they cause quarrels when they come from Mars; from Venus they also denote annoyances, but not of such a vindictive nature.
