Divorce = end of the spousal physical relationship. (The legal dissolution of marriage contract = bhava-6, disputes, treachery, broken promises.)

bhava-8 is the place to look after a first divorce involving custody of young children, because the character of the step-parent (ex-spouse's replacement partner) is found in one's own randhra bhava.

Naturally, there is much mystery surrounding this person and concern about their behavior which is out of the native 's control. Some considerations for the custody-sharing parent:

bhava-8 = the second spouse of one's own ex-first spouse. That is, see the second partner of one's first ex-spouse via bhava-8.

Malefic graha in 8 indicate little wealth coming to the native in a divorce settlement from the first divorce.

Malefic graha in 8 indicate that one's own ex-spouse will have some polarizing catalysis from that malefic within their second union.

  • Shani in 8 - after the first divorce, the ex-spouse has considerable resistance to remarriage. If Shani is dignified, astable second lifepartnership for the ex-spouse after a long delay. Shani in 8 shows a minimal financial contribution from the first spouse during the first union, but if there is divorce then a step-parent for any joint children will not appear until after a long delay. If Shani is very strong, such a post-divorce remarriage for the ex might be fully blocked.

  • Mangala in 8, rapid and possibly impulsive remarriage for the ex-first-spouse. If Mangala is dignified, the ex-spouse's remarriage may be financially beneficial because Mangala is the natural regulator of 8. For example an [uchcha] Kuja in one's own bhava-8 would signal that after first divorce, the ex-spouse marries a capable and competitive businessperson.

  • Rahu in 8, ex-spouse re-marries a barrier-bending, taboo-twisting or exotic partner. This agent is unstable socially, and the ex's replacement marriage therefore might not last long.

  • Ketu in 8 : the ex-spouse may feel great ambivalence toward a second marriage, to the extent that no legal replacement union occurs. Ketu's lord will determine whether the native can tolerate or even enjoy the behavior of this agent.

Benefic graha in 8 indicate that one's own ex-spouse will have some ease from that benefic within their second union.

  • Shukra in 8 - agent is a pleasant and often financially privileged or comfort-loving individual, easy to get along with. In a shared parenting arrangement, this individual is agreeable.

  • Guru in 8 - not only a favorable financial settlement after one's first divorce, but also a jovial and inclusive subsequent mate for your ex.

  • Chandra in 8 - the replacement spouse is deeply parental. Some cause for jealousy on the part of the native perhaps, but shared parenting is sincere.

  • Surya in 8 - - the replacement spouse is very confident of personal ability and needs lots of attention. Although one may not wish to cater to this person's ego-membrane needs, the children will get to see a strong personality at work. Easier if this agent is a male.

  • Budha in 8 - - the replacement spouse is talkative and a planner. one may be surprised by offers of friendship from this agent.
