There is probably no other sun-sign that is this demanding when it comes to marriage.
The Scorpio is willing to put any amount of effort into making the marriage not only work, but also give unparalleled happiness and emotional support to both. For example, a male Scorpio will work day and night accumulating wealth in order to equip the house with all sorts of luxuries and necessities. In case of a female, she would work hard at keeping the house spotless, and provide her husband with all sorts of care and comfort.
But what the Scorpio will hate more than anything else is an attitude from the partner that does not match with his/her. He/she wants someone who will match him/her in every sort of way. A person without the strength of character and vigor that they have is not acceptable to them. And this goes on to the sex life – they do not like the partner to show disinterest. And even when they do it, they want the partner to be passionate and creative just as they are.
All of this is just the result of the kind of plans that the Scorpio has for his/her married life. But there is the possibility of overdoing things, like slogging long hours in the office while the wife passes time in loneliness at home. This is bad to any relationship.
And the only thing that is worse is jealousy. I just cannot stress enough on the need to control this feeling. It can crop not only out of suspicion of the spouse’s sexual relations with another person. The jealousy may be directed even at the spouse himself/herself – say if the spouse is more successful than you are at your career.
Scorpios are excellent parents and don’t just let their children grow up and learn – they teach them stuff, not in the classroom kind of way but through outings and other fun stuff. They also expect a lot from their kids and do not let them settle for average grades. The kids, nudged and encouraged in this way, inherit quite a lot of the independence and vigor of the Scorpio.
