From astrological point of view a love affair will culminate into a marriage alliance if there is an association between the 5th and 7th houses. This association could be through conjunction of their lords, mutual aspects between their lords, exchange of signs, common constellation etc. The stronger the association the greater will be the probability of a love based marriage and its success.
