Some guidelines from the international Palmistry literature about the marriage line (a.k.a. ‘union lines’, ‘affection lines’ or ‘relationship lines’):William G. Benham writes in ‘The Benham Book of Palmistry’ (1900):

(p. 520): “In some hands there are none of these lines and in others many are seen. From time immemorial they have been used by older palmists as indications of marriage or unions of the sexes. Their value in practice is considerable if used up to their limit, and in combination, but used by themselves, as a hard-and-fast indication of marriage, they lead to contstant error.”

David Brandon-Jones writes in ‘Practical Palmistry’ (1986):

(p.241): “They are also known as lines of Marriage or Affection and are connected with the individual”s capacity for giving and receiving affection. A relationship line may or may not refer to husband, wife or lover. To my certain knowledge, it has, in at least one case, indicated a lonely lady’s fondness for a beloved pet. It is not possible, as I know to my cost, to rely on these lines alone as predicting marriage or the start of a long-term relationship.”

Nathaniel Altman, writes in ‘Sexual Palmistry’ (1986):

(p.120): “Unfortunately there is no certain sign of age on a union line, as it length can also reveal the lingering impact of a relationship on the person even after it is ‘officially’ over. Again, the intuition can be usefull here. Major issues involving incompatibility, personality conflicts, lack of commitment and infidelity are often reflected in islands or breaks. Whenever you study a union line, remember that it is subject to change.”
