    Would you marry someone you met online?

    Salam folks =)

    So, would you marry somene you met online?

    Either you were looking or for someone online deliberately or it just happened?

    Would you?

    Do you think it's embarrasing to marry someone "from the internet" - or it's Ok?

    Your views = appreciated. Thanks all!

    =)

    Re: Would you marry someone you met online?

    :

    If I met a Sister, only chatted to her through email and MSN and then thought of marriage? Thats wrong.

    If I met a Sister, got to know her online and then met her face to face and THEN thought of marriage? Thats right.

    Just my opinion but I think you need to at least meet a person before deciding if you both will be able to love one another.

    As long as it is carried out islamically, it will be like any marriage medium.

    Re: Would you marry someone you met online?

    Wasalaam,

    I personally would not marry someone from online-
    its far too risky and i could get a proposal through the Imam from our Masjid

    thats me, but for some that dont live within a Muslim area I think then maybe it could hold some benefits to marry a Muslim if there are no other means

    it would be a last resort kind of thing

    Re: Would you marry someone you met online?

    it is just a means to meet people like other avenues in my opinion. and as long as islamic principles are observed like bro abu jaffar said, i don't see anything wrong with it.

    Re: Would you marry someone you met online?

    Have had this topic a million times before!
    What does 'freedom' mean?

    Does the eagle want to swim in the sea,
    Restricted by the sky?

    Does the fish want to dance on the wind,
    Not enough river to explore?

    Yet the sky is freedom for the bird
    but death for the fish,

    The sea is wide for the fish
    but will engulf the bird.

    We ask for freedom but freedom to do what?
    We can only express our nature as it was created.

    The prayer mat of the earth is freedom,
    freedom from slavery to other than the One,
    Who offers an shoreless ocean of love to swim in
    and a horizon that extends to the next life,

    Just like any other way of meeting someone. You can meet a fake in person and you can meet a fake on the net... with right intentions any way of finding a spouse is acceptable.

    Well I wouldn't believe a single word until I meet the sister and her family in person.

    Online you can paint your picture with flying colours but in reality it's always a different story.

    Re: Would you marry someone you met online?

    I'd marry someone I liked the sound of, and then met in person and made a decision.

    I wouldn't marry someone I had got to know online, because there are some weird Muslim males on the internet - most of them can be found on Facebook.

    Wouldn't it be a hassle, say, if that potential lives on the other side of the world?

    What if initially you met someone in real life 10%
    then on internet forum without proper interaction 90%
    then again in real life

    so you understand the distress, stress, depression, how some people feel tormented?

    If someone is mature and serious enough to get married then they sould be okay about talking to their parents about it.

    Its much better than having a haraam relationship, which would be far more embarassing for the parents if they found out, esp through other means.

    As long as its halal and it depends where the person is from and if anybody knows them

    i could trust it more if someone was recommended... but not a random person off the internet you dont know who they are or their intentions

    not if your parrents are kuffar man. marrage at 21 is weird lol.

    go and "have fun"

    i dont see the fun in having illigetamate chilren who might not be muslim and if they are, when they all grown up they will have to cope with the fact that they were illigetamate.

    ok, thats was off topic. my point stands tho.

    To be honest, it's difficult to find proper people around in the community/family at least from what I'm noticing. Since the "extremists"/"strangers" are clumped on online forums/dawah rooms, so you've got a better chance to get that type of person online.

    I'd still find it awkward though when family asks "where did you found this person?" The internet! lolz...but you gotta do what you gotta do.

    id rather go for the 'extremists' any day than the druggies that seem to be surrounding my end
    nobody wants marriage for serious stuff it seems- only for a bit of fun
    you have to be extremely picky when it comes to this
    to find a practicing brother is rare and treasured alas they are jobless

    so then with the disguises in my community- guess internet would be far worse
    or would it be better as only serious people would consider marriage online?

    Yeah...provided we both know atleast one other person personally in common.
