(Just for Fun)

Disclaimer: This is just for fun and not to be taken seriously.

Most people say that my wife and I are the most incompatible couple they have ever met. Most of our friends and relatives wonder how we have managed to stay married together for over 30 years. Even our children are surprised as to how two individuals with such contrasting temperaments can remain together for so long. 

The fact that my wife and I have lived together for over 30 years implies that though outwardly it may not seem so, inwardly there must be some mysterious hidden compatibility between us. 

Sometimes, you have a fact before you that defies rational logic, so you have to try to find some reason to substantiate or “validate that fact, maybe even ex post facto

That is why I took solace in numerology. 

And, hey presto, I was able to “prove that we, my wife and I, are indeed compatible.

Dear Reader: Have a look at the Pythagorean Numerology Table below.

Let’s calculate the numerological value of my name VIKRAM 
(4+9+2+9+1+4 = 29 = 2+9 = 11 = 1+1 = 2

The numerological value is 2.

Now let’s compute the numerological value of my wife’s name POORNIMA 
(7+6+6+9+5+9+4+1 = 47 = 4+7 = 11 = 1+1 = 2). 

Hey, my wife’s numerological value is also 2.

That’s why we are such a perfect match – or are we?

Why don’t you try and check your numerological compatibility with your spouse, friend, loved one, boss, colleagues, or anyone with whom you are planning a close relationship. 

Just use the simple Pythagorean Table above and compute the numerological value of your names.

If you have a perfect match, it’s great. 

But don’t worry if your numerology values are not identical (perfect match).

Even if the numerological values are in harmony (one divisible by the other) it’s a sign of excellent compatibility. For example, if the husband’s numerological value is 3 and the wife’s comes out to be 6 or 9 or vice versa then they are in “harmony

So if you find out that your marriage “rocks” be happy, tell your spouse and celebrate.

And if your values just don’t match (inharmonious combinations like 2 and 7 or 3 and 8 or 4 and 9 etc) just don’t worry - try out some other numerology system - like Chaldean, Indian, Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, African, even Abracadabra - there are so many numerology tables, charts and calculators available. Keep trying till you discover your mutual compatibility. And then you can “validate your marital compatibility and be happy. 

That is the trick we use while doing “research” - you just keep on trying all permutations and combinations till you find a “justification” for your hypothesis”.

Dear Reader: Have a good day and “discover” your “compatibility” with any person you want to. And here is a caveat - please don’t use numerology as an excuse to “dump someone - that is unethical and just not done. 

And hey, don’t take this too seriously – this is just for fun!
