    seeking advice for my married life.....

    Asalam e likum Everyone;

    I hope all of you will be doing great Insha-Allah. I so much want Islamic counseling and advice to make my marital life happy and contented.... I really dun knw where to start from.....

    Well..... I am an educated and professional lady in my early 30s. few months back i had my Nikah. My husband lives in Australia (citizen) since the last 10 years while im living in Pakistan. Soon after our Nikah, my husband went back. the documents are in the process and as soon as i get my visa, he will come back and the formal wedding (ruskhsati) will be arranged and i will leave with him.

    The thing im worried about is..... my husband is not at all romantic.... rather super practical man..... he is in his late 30s. its been eight months to our Nikah and he has never ever said me that he miss me or waiting for me to join him soon...... rather he is very formal when ever we talk.... as per the information (authentic) my family gathered about him before our Nikah was done, he is a hard working man and apart from his job hours, we usually just see few firends. he do not attend parties, and is a home lover kind of person. Also he do not have any girl friend....

    I understand and except that we are in our mature age, but it does not mean that we should not have any feelings..... where, a husband-wife realtionship is a beautiful, delicate and a romantic relationship.... He is friendly, also shares laughters sometimes..... but jus like a firend...... if we were only engaged, i could have thought that is being careful, which is really good, but im his wife..... and he never shared any good thoughts.... i have heard dozen's of friends/cuzins where couples plan for their future, build understanding.....

    can anyone help me? is it normal? he also never send me a gift, or even a greeting card to make me feel good. once when i asked him in general about this, he jus said, oh im sorry, keep the record for future when u join me.... once i said i was missing him, he said... very good, but when i asked him, do u miss me.... he replied .... im not at all romantic so i dun knw how to say such things....... he says he do not want to use typical words like 'i miss you' that freaked me out...... though i didnt show him anything but i got so much tense.... how can a husband say this to his wife????

    i dun feel it a normal thing.... much worried about my marital life.... any guidence?????

    thanks in advance friends....

    :wswrwb:

    I'm not married so my advice may not be great but I think since you just got married things are still not fully in place you know what I mean?

    Until you start living together etc than :insha: he will be more open.

      wa alaikuma salaam sis,

      I think you really get to know a person when you live under the same roof.. Maybe he's not a man of words, but a man of actions.. You will find out inshaa Allaah
      when you live together, he'll get to know you much better and vice versa..

        Some men just don't have a romantic gene. It doesn't mean he'll be a bad husband. You guys don't really know each other, so in a way, there's really nothing for him to miss, you know what I mean? Just wait till you start living together and build a life. If he's friendly and you laugh together, that's very good.

        Maybe you can create opportunities for him to feel good about himself when you guys talk. Ask him about something that he knows really well, ask him about Australia, that sort of thing. I wouldn't worry too much. He married you, so he must think that being together with you is not a bad thing.

            Inshallah itll be ok when you start living with him

            at the end of the day he is a grown man who chose to say yes to marrying you

            We are all different, some are over affectionate and some are not.

            Some are robots ..some are not

                    I think when you're together, you can teach him how to be romantic in a nice way. Some men come from a background where they had no women interaction (ie. no sisters etc), so they don't understand women that well or haven't experienced being around women enough. Maybe because of this he doesnt know how to or feels uncomfortable. talk to him

                      k someone explain please why is it in some cultures you have the nikkah like a week before then you have the mehndi etc...and then you have a 'wedding or ruksati', because at the stage of nikkah the bride and groom are married .....

                      please note i am only asking a question as to why this happens, so i can clearly understand myself

                        Salam Seekingthepath;

                        You are right. Nikkah is an Islamic official marriage document which is followed by rukhsati and walima (reception). Where rukhsati is suggested to be simple whereas walima is high profile to announce the relationship.

                        But every region has some additional customs and traditions. It is sunnah to put Mehandi on Brides hands and nails before nikkah.... The Beloved daughter Bibi Fatimah of Prophet Muhammad Peace and blessings be upon him, had put mehandi before her nikkah.

                        But the traditions have been molded now, these are celebrated in big magnitude with combined gatherings of men and women, dances, music has also been a kind of mandatory part of a wedding ceremony which is really prohibited in Islam. There are still many families in Pakistan that discourage huge mehandi ceremonies, combine gatherings, dances and music.

                        As far as Nikkah before rukhsati is concerned, it is done for different reasons. In my case, as my husband lives abroad, it is done before rukhsati so that before the proper wedding (rukhsati) my visa is ready. Some families prefer Nikkah over engagements. sometimes, to save time on the rukhsati ceremony, few families arrange Nikkah before a week.....

                        I hope it staisfies but if any confusion left, you are welcome to ask any question :)

                        Regards - wasalam

                              Hmmmmmmmm...this guy sounds a lot like me Lol.Shyness could be a reason .Eventhough it is your wife sometimes you tend to think i don't know how to go about this or will i make a fool of myself or stuff like that.When this happens unconsciously the guy becomes stuck in his own world and very self-absorbed so to speak.
                              Yes some have the art of naturally being romantic ,for others it takes time and comes with a bit of experience in doing stuff ,self confidence etc.....

                              As most people pointed out here what matters most is his deen and his character ...Romance will follow InshaAllah.
