    salam alaykum wa rahmat allah
    if the poor man can provide the poor women with shelter and food and give her rights and she agrees to live with him it okay .but she is not obliged to help him with her income because it the man who have the financial responsibility not the women but if she want to help him with her income there is no problem.
    handicap and disabled men can marry if they have an income so they cover the expenses of the wife. as for the woman it dosent matter as long as she is a muslim and sane she can marry if she want to no matter what physical disability she have .as for mentaly disabled people i dont think that they know what marriage is
    people who cant have children can still marry no problem however they should tell their partner about their issue before getting married and they should not hide it
    and allah knows best

      Walaykum salam yes poor and low income people can marry and did get married during the time of the Prophet (saw), in fact there is a hadith about one man who got married and he had no wealth not even an iron ring for his wife and her mahr was just the little bit of Quranic knowledge he had. If the poor man can maintain his wife in terms of feeding her, sharing his room with her etc and maintaining her basic expenses then they can marry. Sadly these days people make marriage difficult by holding huge expensive weddings, taking out haram loans to pay for them and so people on lower incomes find it harder to marry when Islam makes things easy and the Prophet (saw) preferred simplicity when it came to weddings.

      Yes disabled people can marry. Physically disabled people can marry as long as both spouses understand the limitations involved (eg if a wife is paralysed you can't expect her to do certain chores- buy a roomba if you want clean floors or hire a maid) and are willing to accommodate each others needs accordingly. A disabled person can marry another disabled person or can marry a physically able person.

      As for a learning disabled person with special needs (eg such as down syndrome etc) a lot depends on the extent of the learning disability. For example, sometimes a person who is a little academically slow with a lower IQ can marry if the person is lucid and able to think and understand enough to know what a marital relationship is and what is involved. Having said that though, there are certain conditions whereby a person is profoundly affected by special needs to the extent that he or she doesn't know what marriage is such as someone with a low mental age and the mind of a child. Such people may have physically grown to adulthood but have the mind of a 5 year old and such a person should not marry because Islamic requirements of marriage are that the husband and wife have reached adulthood and are lucid and clear thinking enough to know what type of relationship they're about to be part of.

      It is an act of cruelty to make someone get married who has such a child like mind, that he or she doesn't understand what a nikah is or what he or she is agreeing to. It is also very wrong to get someone married who has a type of mental illness in which he or she is not lucid, not in touch with reality and therefore is not in a position to give informed consent. Some people with certain mental illnesses can marry such as anxiety, depression and OCD because they can differentiate between reality and fantasy, but someone who has a mental illness in which they do not understand who they themselves really are or what they're doing- that would be wrong as it would be akin to forcing someone to marry without their own consent.
