    Yes, it can work. And no I would likely not marry that woman.

          If both want it to work, of course it can.
          I fully understand why most people wouldn't want it, but I mean, I would marry them.
          So long as he could act like a husband and provide, and the wife does her part to the best of her abilities... I see no issue with it.

            Why would you marry someone you couldn't spend time with? I wouldn't do long distance marriage.

                Yes, it can work, but it's an extra stress upon the marriage which makes it less likely to work out in the end.

                  This ^, what Gingerbreadman said.

                    Good point. Hard to make it work.
                    Unless one does hijrah for the sake of marriage.

                      You mean the husband and the wife live apart?

                      What kind of marriage is that?

                          I seriously don't think this works. :chargrined:

                          Unless either the wife goes to live with the husband, or the husband goes to live with the wife. It's a pressure on both, (or if they have children, on them as well).

                          Allah says:
                          هُنَّ لِبَاسٌ لَكُمْ وَأَنْتُمْ لِبَاسٌ لَهُنَّ
                          They (your wives) are your clothing; and you are their clothing.

                          Husband and wife should be as close to each other as clothing is to the body, and as body is to clothing.

                            it can work for some time but after some months it will become a stress, whitnessing from my own marriage, it works for some months, then you really want to move in together... just make sure that doesnt cause any difference of opinion, maybe its not a bad idea to postpone until you both are able to move in together, also a good period of time to get to know eachother better in sha Allah

                              If both parties are happy with that arrangement I can see it having some "success" but as a long term solution I'm not so sure. I thought this sort of thing happens because one party is unable to secure a visa so they end up in this situation or one party has very little say in the matter so it's out of their hands.
