    It means having sex together. As for when you do it, that's up to you and your partner. I'd recommend before you get married, myself.

      Ok thanks, so consummate always means having sex together? Doesnt it mean anything else in other cultural or religous traditions?

        Women aren't cars

        But the Western view of woman as commodity comes through perfectly in your post.

            It depends on the language, in my opinion. In Arabic, for instance, the word for consummation has several differing meanings.

              Its not the intercourse which cosumates the marriage, its generally when a man and woman share intimacy after nikah. A kiss on the forehead can consumate the marraige.

                The marriage should be consumated as late as possible.

                    As far as I know there is no time limit to when the marriage should be consumated after nikah.

                      I stand by what I said..

                      All this as soon as possible is hocus pocus.

                        Salam this is what i was looking for.

                        So for example . A man divorces his wife 3 times irrecoverably. Then they cant remarry unless she consumates a second marraige with a 3rd party. But consumate does not necessairly mean sexual relations. It could imply something else.. like e.g. a kiss on the forehead.

                          Yeh its best to find out from a sound scholar because this is a big issue.

                              Even though intimacy between a couple best describes what consumate may mean. However in the re-marraige scenario there has to be sincerity, ie one cant just re-marry with the intention to divorce in order to re-marry the previous spouse. That would be invalid.

                              Both parties would have to re-marry naturally sharing intimacy and it is only valid to remarry the previous spouse if the marriage ends in divorce naturally, ie not intentional divorce to marry or re-marry someone else.

                              hope this makes sense.
