    Re: Is it permissible for the groom to marry in secret?

    :salams

    Tbh, I wouldn't wait 8 years for someone to marry me. I'd say straight up "Either we marry publically, where both of our parents know 100% what is going on, or there is no marriage between us"

If the parents are not happy then you should marry a woman who would be patient with the possible misconduct towards her and most of all able to tolerate it, your parents might grow over the hate because of the kindness. Else you are dragging someone into a hell.
    Mostly people have given good advice.
    I know one couple both from Bangladesh and have relation much longer and marriage was delaying. Male went back home Bangladesh and married younger more beautiful and educated girl and they have children now in a happy life.
    While girl is still single and hitting 40-50 and unable to find some one to get marry.
    If you have build up haram relation then there will be no barakah in this secret marriage and may not last long

    I wanted to get some advice regarding a dilemma I am facing. I know most of you probably have heard this before and it may come as a no-brainer to some of you, but nonetheless, I would really appreciate it if you can give me some sincere advice. I would prefer it coming from someone who has experience of this as they may be able to relate to it well and give me a realistic opinion on it. Ok..so here goes.

    I wish to get married to this brother, however his family is not happy with him marrying me. He is Pakistani and I am Bangladeshi. Yes, before you say anything, it is a 'race thing'. I have met his family. He has met mine. My family are happy to go ahead with this marriage provided his family knows about it.

    This is where it gets complicated. We have tried to get his family's blessings for 8 years now and still to no avail. He values his family very much and he does not want to lose them. If he marries me, his family will cut ties and disown him so he has suggested that we marry but we do not tell his family. Is this permissible? I suggested we tell his family at a later date because, regardless of the issues, they have a right to know. Please advise. Not sure what to do.
    8 years is a long time. So you've both tried but his family is still living with the old mindset.

    It is permissable for you to marry. If his family disowns him that's with them and God. He won't be getting sin for it and neither will you.

    He should marry, and both of you should start your own life together. Family should not stop you from getting married after all things considered.

    Feelings of guilt and letting him down should not enter the equation when deciding on marriage. After 8 years its unlikely his family will change. Its possible they would even get worse after marriage as there are no limits to how low some trash families will sink.

    You're right but if you care about someone, it's hard to walk away.

    It's more complicated than that brother, but thank you for your advice.

    My current thoughts are I don't want to continue like this so I'm taking a break from it. I've explained to him that I want to do this properly. He said that he is going to sort it out. In the meantime, I'm just going to get on with my life.

    Jazak Allahu Khair everyone for your insights. It really has helped me. Some harsh truths but that what I like about you all. You tell it like it is, Alhamdulilah :). Salams.

Girls usually have more self respect than that. So the question arises why were u patient? I hope its not because you already had relations with him.

    Yes, you're right. It does sound ridiculous. I did explain that to him.

    You've lost nearly a decade on this man... Get your head out of the Sand!
    You make a valid point

    Salaam sister,

    You need to have a long, serious talk with him. Talk about what he wants out of marriage. Talk about what he expects from his family when he is married. How will you handle a wedding? How will you handle family visits? How will you handle children? Have you spoken extensively about how you will handle your new lives together, and your respective families, when you're married? How will you handle the situation when one of your family members insults or angers your spouse?

    I know what you're going through... I also have a brother I am interested in marrying who is Pakistani. I've known him for 3 years. His family knows nothing about me. His family most likely would not accept me. I've put myself through so much heartache, as I'm sure you have too, because I didn't want to lose this man. Because I want his family to accept me so much. But it's all out of my control. It's a terrible feeling sister, on both sides. You don't deserve to put yourself through this any longer.

    It's been 8 years. 8 years is more than long enough. Honestly, he should have known how his family feels 6 or 7 years ago. If he hasn't gotten his family's approval by now, it's not going to happen. Pulling you along like this is selfish if he knows there's no future. As marriage is on both your minds, you're wasting your time (if his family is not going to change their mind). He's getting the best of both worlds right now - his family and his partner. It needs to stop. He can't be selfish anymore. He needs to choose.

    If he is truly unaware of what he's doing to you, he needs to realize it, now. Either he's with you, or he needs to let you go. Now. Not tomorrow, not in another year, but now. If this relationship is heading nowhere (which it seems to have been heading that way for a long time now), then it needs to end. Today. You both need to start moving on and healing.

    When you're in a marriage, you make the decision to choose and commit to each other every day. If he has people in his life who are very important to him but also very opposed to that, then he can't truly be committing to you. Not if he's committed to other people who oppose you.

    This situation isn't fair to either of you
    . You both deserve happiness. If one or both of you can't get that from this relationship, then it needs to end.

    I have heard of cases where families start to come around when there's children involved. So if you had children, they could soften up. But at this point, that's a big if.

    Talk. Talk now, and don't wait another 8 years. Don't get married in secret. It won't end well at all. The very fact that you're posting this shows that you're having doubts, and you know it's not what you should be doing.

    I wish you the best sister. I will pray for you. Look inside your heart. I'm sure you already know what you have to do. Whatever it is, own it. Take control of your own destiny.

    Don't let anyone else write yours for you.
    I explained that to him. Just feels like I'm doing all the sacrificing.
