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 naturally counts items, recounts the list, and re-computes the tally.

Budha-7 may remain formally married while experimenting with other intimate arrangements.

Due to a variety of the dictum karako bhavo nashto which says that matters of the bhava may be damaged by the residency of the karaka for those matters:

When Professor Budha occupies sexual communication bhava-7 which governs mating and genital sexuality, the result may be that sexual enthusiasm sometimes gets replaced by talking.

Not good for Mesha-Arya lagna or Vṛścika-Thriketta lagna, where Budha becomes rogesha-6 +randhresha-8 . F

Mithunaya-Dvamdva lagna, the spouse becomes a twin: typically in the same business/profession as Budha-7, with very similar mentality.
