    I was gonna make the same point, but then I realized this really only applies (the leisure time) to other sisters. From my personal experience, such sisters tend to be the youngest (and naturally the most spoiled - this applies to brothers too) and the eldest sibling is the next one to handle responsibilities after their parents so the youngest never really feel the pressure. Of course, that's not to say they don't have regular responsibilities like homework and chores and such but of course, such responsibilities don't match up to marriage so when they do get married, they get a bit of a shock (Especially if she's used to being spoiled by her father).

    Obviously this goes for both genders.

    only because parents worry and they don't want to leave behind a single daughter, they want to fulfil their duties and see them married off

    every parent wants to succeed in this and they feel stressed too, so in return it can make us feel like a burden because we feel guilty that this whole process is difficult enough as it is and on top of that our parents are panicking

    no one likes to see their parents unhappy unless they're an evil child

    Oooh jazaka Allah. I guess it has to do with much less leisure time

    lol it sounds like the husband will put us in a cage or something. No but seriously, freedom for what?

    If anything marriage would bring more freedom if only sisters looked at it properly
    also after moving out of your parents home, you know have your own space, your own life, your own family to build, you're more independent in a way. It's great for those whose families may not be that practising. You don't choose your family but you can choose your spouse. Marriage is an opportunity to better your deen in so many ways. Those who leave it off because of 'lack of freedom' are being immature. I mean what exactly are they doing now when they are single? partying? wasting time? don't they have responsibilities anyway?
