Marriage is an important commitment, and it’s not a commitment we’re all made for. A substantial number of marriages end in divorce, and many of us prefer to remain single anyway. Whether it’s because we want to focus on our careers, we don’t want to share our space, or we prefer to pair up with no strings attached, there are a number of legitimate reasons not to tie the knot – not that you need any reason. But did you know that astrology can play a role in how likely you are to get married?
According to astrologers, some zodiac signs are more prone to long-term romance, while others prefer to be alone. Read on to discover the zodiac signs least likely to marry, from maybe meditating to putting your foot firmly on the ground.

Of the signs on this list, you probably have the best chance with a Virgo – although they might still have some apprehension. While Virgos are not unromantic by nature, they are selective when it comes to who they allow to share their spaces. While they may not be as expressive in their emotions, they are sensitive to what others think. According to astrologer Lauren Ash, this “can lead to passive aggression in long-term relationships if they can’t learn to express what they’re feeling.” But, she adds, “if a Virgo can find a sensitive and understanding partner to coax their feelings into, they’re incredibly dedicated to their relationships.”
Like the other fire signs, Aries is known for being passionate – and loves big displays of affection. However, they can be prone to jealousy if they are feeling unappreciated. “They expect to be adored in a relationship and just don’t commit to anything they don’t feel 1000% passionate about,” says Ash. So what does an Aries need? Someone who “will shower them with infinite affection and words of affirmation”.

When it comes to expressing their emotions, Scorpios can only do so when they are comfortable with their partner. “What makes marriage difficult for Scorpios is finding the right person,” says Ash. “Scorpions are looking for a once-in-a-lifetime soulmate connection.” She says the “dating culture” can complicate things for them. “They’ll only say ‘yes’ if they plan to spend the rest of their lives with the other person,” adds Ash.
Gemini, or “insightful twins”, are always on the move and taking in everything. According to astrology consultant Sofia Adler, this sign is all about “both-and”, not “either-or”. “They love the ability to learn and discover new and exciting things by dating lots of different people,” she explains. So marriage is not necessarily in the cards.

The second least likely to marry on our list, Aquarians are bubbly people, but it can be challenging for them to be stuck with a single commitment or idea. “Their combined need for freedom and their stubborn personalities make it difficult to keep their attention,” says Ash. But what if you get their attention? They can be “incredibly loyal partners”.
With their wandering spirit and fire sign energy, Sagittarians have “a reputation for being extreme flirts.” Unfortunately, this makes them the least likely sign to marry on our list. Since they don’t tend to thrive in rigid structures or routines, Ash says, “it can make them nervous to go down the traditional path of marriage.” But if they find the right partner, a long-term romance could work. “The archaic norm of marriage repels Aquarius, the visionary who wants to do things differently and look to the future instead of being stuck in the past,” says Adler.
