Almost all the incarnations of female goddesses such as Sita, Rukmini, and Satya etc., have an accompanying male gods Rama, Krishna etc.,

There are many male avatars such as Matsya, Kurma, Vamana, Parasurama etc., without any accompanying female goddesses.

Is there any reason for this?

  • The avataras you mentioned are.mostly short duration avatara like vaamana matsya kurma and Naarasimha... May 30, 2018 at 1:55
  • Mata Sati and Mata Parvati incarnated without accompanied by any male God.

    "but in the examples I gave, they live without any marriage" Actually all examples that you gave, never lived a life. All your given example never took birth from womb of a woman and didn't live specific age on Earth. They didn't had parents unlike Raama and Krishna. All those incarnation who had parents and live a specific age on Earth are always has female Godess with them so that they can marry. There is no way, Vishnu will take incarnation without Lakshami. It's not possible. Only Vahmana incarnation is exception of it I guess.
