We’ll discuss all the best matches for marriage in this post going through why we’ve chosen these as the most compatible suitors. At the same time, we’ll also outline the zodiac signs we think Virgos are best to avoid.

Marriage is a lifelong commitment so it’s best to find someone who gets you 100%. Of course, star signs are just one factor to consider and compromise is always healthy in any relationship.

So, Virgos make way for Cupid because he’s about to start firing his arrows.

What are Virgos like in life?

First, let’s find out what the personality traits of Virgos are. This will help to better understand what they should look out for in their life partners.

Virgos are practical and down to earth which is always a good basis for any relationship, never mind a marriage. This approach to everyday tasks will help to ensure that they keep their partner in check and on the right path. 

Virgos are also perfectionists so we expect strong things from their choice of wedding invitations and other stationary elements. They’re organized, reliable, and dedicated, absolutely perfect for marriage.

Story Amour Facts About Virgos: 

  • Virgos are people born between August 23rd and September 22nd.

What star sign is a perfect match for a Virgo?

Whilst we’ve identified that Taurus is the most compatible match for a Virgo you don’t need to rush out and buy a ring just yet. Or maybe you do, that’s your call. 

However, Cancer, Capricorn, Scorpio, and Pisces might also be great options so let’s give them a chance too.

Our List of the Best matches for a Virgo to Marry


So why has Taurus made the top of our list with a 100% match score?

Well, first off they’re also an earth sign and as such have similar values and principles. 

For example, they both place high importance on stability, loyalty, and reliability. Who can blame? These are important qualities for any successful marriage.

Equally, because Taurus is patient and calm this can work well in tangent with Virgo’s mindset of analysis. This creates harmony as one partner can play off the other to find the perfect balance in the relationship.

If you’re a Virgo and prone to worrying then a Taurus can be that wonderfully calming presence in your life. Another benefit is that they’ll match your slow and steady wins the race attitude towards love. 

You might be together for a long time, but what’s the rush? You’ll still get married one day.

Do you like someone who knows what they want and they go out and get it? Well, a Capricorn could be just the ticket. Once again it’s another earth sign and easy to see why it’s made it high up on our list.

They apply the same ambition, drive, and detail to their work life as they do to their personal one. So they’ll be highly successful individuals but also have time for their partners.

A Capricorn can be a great motivator for a Virgo and vice versa. They’ll both have their own structure and routines and this can be something that strengthens their bond.

If these two do decide to marry then they’re in it for the long haul. They’re both inherently reliable and trustworthy. They’ll make it work whatever life throws at them.

Cancerians just hit the post regarding their suitability for a Virgo. They’re a water sign so there are a few conflicts.

They could be the ideal marital partner for a whole host of reasons. They’re nurturing as well as supportive so someone ideal to start a family with. 

The Cancer sign gets security and stability from the Virgo. At the same time, the Virgo will bring out the best of a Cancerian by helping them to really express what they’re feeling. 

It’s not all smooth sailing though between these two which explains why they haven’t got top marks. Cancers may view the behavior of Virgos as insensitive at times and a little bit harsh. Whereas Virgos may think that Cancers are taking things a little bit too much to heart.

So long as communication between the couple is good they can definitely make more than a good go of married life. Compromise is important in any marriage regardless of the other person’s zodiac sign.

Like Cancer, Scorpio is another water sign and can be a good match for a Virgo.

They could be a great option for a Virgo to marry because they have a similar outlook on the world. Equally, once they’re together they’ll both be committed to making sure it works long-term. 

Chances are that these two will share their dreams and aspirations with one another and help each other to achieve them. 

One drawback however could come from the high standards Virgos expect. A Scorpio may react badly if a Virgo is on their case demanding more when they think they can’t give it.

Once again communication is the key and a little bit of compromise is essential. The reason a Virgo will push a Scorpio is that they know they are capable. A Scorpio needs to accept this and realize they’re just trying to get the best out of them. 

Equally, a Virgo can also choose their words more carefully so that they don’t come off as harsh or mean.

At first, you might be thinking, what?! Have they lost the plot?! A Pisces and a Virgo are compatible for marriage. But hear us out.

Whilst they are opposite zodiac signs they can balance each other out if they’re in a relationship or married.

A Pisces can help a Virgo to really connect with their emotions bringing out a side they never knew they had. On the other hand, a Virgo can use those characteristics of stability and routine to ground their husband or wife. This structure can be great for an otherwise imaginative and dreamy Pisces in helping them achieve their goals.

Ultimately a Pisces will add that touch of unpredictability and magic to a Virgo’s life. A Virgo will be able to temper this just enough so that nothing boils over and they can have a harmonious union.

What sign is best avoided by a Virgo?

Now that we’ve brought you right up to speed on who a Virgo should marry we should look at the opposite end of the spectrum.

Let’s take a look at four of the worst potential matches for a Virgo. Aries, Gemini, Sagittarius, and Aquarius are the most challenging in our opinion. Of course, it’s worth remembering that there are always exceptions to the rules. However, these signs seem to clash in a number of ways.

Let’s take a look at them in a little more detail.

Virgo and Aries

The complete opposite of a match made in heaven these two have completely different approaches to most things in life. Especially relationships! 

As we’ve already mentioned Virgos love their stability and routine whereas Aries does the complete opposite. They’re impulsive, adventurous and can change their minds with the click of their fingers.

Of course, if these obstacles can be overcome there may be something to salvage from the rubble. Just know that it might be a bumpy ride.

Virgo and Gemini

It’s a similar story for Geminis compatibility as well when it comes to marriage. They’re much more of a free spirit and have that duality to their personalities. 

A Gemini’s sociable nature may be unappealing to a Virgo and they may get jealous. 

Equally, marriage relies heavily on the commitment to the cause, something that Virgos put a special emphasis on. With Geminis being much more unpredictable they could run at the first signs of trouble.

Virgo and Sagittarius

We know we’re going to sound a little like a broken record but once again there’s a disparity between these two when it comes to marriage.

Sagittarians are independent and adventurous whereas a Virgo is a little more straight-laced. While a Virgo may want to do things by the book a Sagittarius may prefer to rip up the rule book and burn it.

This difference in personality traits could cause friction, especially in a marriage. It is of course possible for these two to get along eventually. They may however have to overcome some obstacles that wouldn’t appear with a better match.

Virgo and Aquarius

If you want a problematic marriage then choosing an Aquarius to marry would be perfect. But who wants that?! Our advice is to steer clear if you can.

Aquarians tend to be unconventional with their mind firmly set on the big picture. Virgos on the other hand are much more detail-oriented and conventional. What we’re saying is that they’re at opposite ends of the spectrum on a lot of their approaches to life. 

Whilst it’s a recipe for disaster we’re not saying it can’t happen with hard work. However, there are so many more zodiac signs to choose from above an Aquarius who will make better options for marriage.

Why a Virgo can be difficult in relationships

If you’re a Virgo yourself then this next bit may be hard to hear. You can be difficult in relationships for a variety of reasons. So whilst you might think it’s all about who should a Virgo marry? The more pressing question might be should I marry a Virgo?

Virgos generally butt heads with partners because of the high standards they set for themselves and others. If this behavior isn’t appreciated by their partner it can come across as negative and pushy. Not the best for a happy marriage is it now?

They’ll often be pessimistic rather than optimistic which will clash with a lot of the more positive-natured signs. Of course, they only have the best interests of themselves, their partner, and everyone around them. It just may not come across this way without a little bit of work internally.

Ultimately, if they can learn to relax a little and not sweat the small stuff so much they can get along fine with almost anyone. However, your mindset is a difficult thing to change, especially when you’ve been that way for your entire life.

At what stage in life should a Virgo get married?

Virgos like to get all their ducks in a row before most decisions in their life. So, understandably marriage can get delayed. Put it this way, there’s no danger of having a shotgun wedding.

Maybe they want to have the perfect career first, be financially stable as well as achieve goals in their personal life. This can all take time so marriage might get put on the back burner.

Of course, should the right person come along that could all go out the window. However, it’s unlikely you’ll see a Virgo looking for ways to present a wedding ring in a hurry. If they’re proposed to instead though it could be a whole other story. 

So…Who does a Virgo marry?

As you’ll no doubt know by now our opinion is that there are 5 clear matches for a Virgo. So, if you’re a Taurus, Cancer, Capricorn, Scorpio, or Pisces look out for your Virgo partner popping the question.

They are made for a long-lasting and loving marriage. At the same time, they should be pretty handy in planning the wedding. Their attention to detail and analytical nature will be appreciated when it comes to keeping an eye on the budget. Heck, you might even save enough to pay for an awesome honeymoon!

A Virgo ultimately should look for someone that makes them a better version of themselves. If they wake up each and every day looking forward to spending time with and discussing all of life’s trials and tribulations then marriage shouldn’t be too far away.
