    Asking someone why they are still not married and suspicion

    "Is it wrong to be suspicious of someone over 30 who's still single? If they seem perfect on paper?"

    "And is it rude to ask why they haven't married up until the point you started talking to them (as a potential)?"

    Opinions on this
    “How amazing is it that a seeker of knowledge leaves his home in order to recite and memorise the Qur’ān. It is as if his tongue is saying: ‘O my Lord, bear witness! I want to carry the Qur’ān in my chest, thereby seeking Your Face, and desiring that which is with You!’”

    Lol sounds like my mother :')

    They need to take a parenting class man. Its kind of a form of oppression I think even though they mean well and they're doing this out of love (their mindset ticks like that) i just hope we are better with our kids when it comes to marraige proposals.

    I'm sure ur stunning, sis I can see it in ur posts

    Yeah, I know. Alhamdulillah my family isn't like that, but I know many sisters who are having this problem. They found a good potential, but parents won't agree because the guy is not from the same caste/tribe. It's kinda sad, really.

    Unless there is some clear problem then people might be suspicious as to what the reason is.
    السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته akhi

    Akhi, more pressing reason is why people delay their marriage, without a justifiable Islamic reason, most people don't follow the advice given by Rasulullah salallahu عليه السلام‎ to the young,

    We're supposed to get married, as soon as we are old enough, have the means, mature,

    But instead we put multiple obstacles, careers, must spend this much wealth on weddings like a spendthrift, must have e accumulated this much wealth, must own a house etc,

    On the other hand we have those who simply haven't manned up, hi just delay marriage cause they are mentally deficient, "Not ready" even though they have the means, and are d enough...

    All of this adds to the increase in Fitna and Fassad in the Ummah,

    No no I'm not bothered by it at all because it's true. However I always had the impression that Arabs are just as fussy too. I could be wrong.

    Highest is either MoMo. or Asiyah or *aishah* not sure. Although actually may well be neither as I know a lot of members have hit the 1k mark and beyond so not sure. Good question though. (Bro how lame is it that we are talking about reps so seriously? Ahahah)

    To be honest that's not just a desi thing. It's pretty much in our culture too

    I was one. And I was enjoying it, and I also enjoyed playing games with nosy people like that. They eventually dreaded the idea of asking me about why am I still single. So people, be creative and witty, and you will repudiate them.

    You are no longer single?

    More happily single women should share their point of view. How did you accept and enjoy being a woman 30 plus that wasn't married?

    I had several relationships (now please don't get on me for this word), I planned to get married several times but every time it turns out that the person is just wrong. But I needed time to figure that out, I was open and ready to give another chance, and I got disappointed so many times, so I figured I don't want to get married any more. Marriage is overrated, and a small percentage of people have the real thing. Despite that, everyone wants to get married thinking they will surely get the real deal and not a divorce in a couple of years. When you're single, you are in control all the time, you do what you want and no one will bother you for doing it. However, when you're married, there are many things you can't control, you have to make compromises all the time. I figured being single was a blessing for me.

    Anyways, I got a PhD offer abroad, and I planned to live all by myself. It was a PhD I really wanted to do, and I was happy. I stopped thinking about marriage and all the fuss, and I annoyed people who dared to ask me about marriage. Everyone has something embarrassing they don't want to talk about (I'm not saying being single is one of those things), but every time someone asks me a question like why am I not married (which is a pretty rude question), I ask them about that embarrassing thing they are trying to hide from everyone.

    Yeah, I got married. I wasn't trying to find anyone, I wasn't looking to get married, but since I met him, he has been an inspiration for me. A person with unique qualities, honest and open-minded, very much like myself. And if it wasn't for him, and if he wasn't the way he was/is, I am sure I would never get married, and I'd still be happy to be single.

    If it is not the right person, and you're not 100% sure he/she is the right one, being single is a better option. Don't settle for anything just so you're not alone.

    Re: Asking someone why they are still not married and suspicion

    Yes, we should try to be a little more open minded on the subject. Not every single 30something year old was too busy living a bachelor life. There are other things that can be going on in life that distract people from marriage.

    Re: Asking someone why they are still not married and suspicion

    You are free to ask why. But to be suspicious because someone is 30+ is just ridiculous and old fashioned. There are literally hundreds of reasons why people marry in their 30's.

    I will be 30 years old next year. I've had suitors in my early 20s. But they just didn't work out. One was a liar and the other wasn't able to provide for me properly. Then I've had some family problems for the last couple years of my life. I would like to get married but qadr of Allah.

    Marriage is like anything in life, it is in the hands of Allah. You can't judge someone for something that is in the hands of Allah.
    Say, O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.”
    (Surah Az Zumar, (Chapter 39: Verse 53)
