Assalam alakum What do you think about secret marriage which is hidden from man's parents ? Because if they wuld heear their son got married, they might be shocked indeed. And maybe their relation with the son would be really bad. They dont let their son to get married because he still has years ahead according to his current studies but son found a Muslimah who seem to be a good person and her parents might agree to let them have islamic nikah and then get together as a family some years later after their studies finish (untill then probably they will keep living seperate and contact on internet) And after all, when his parents are more soft and let him get married by then, maybe he would tell his parents he wanna get married with this girl (who is already his wife) So Is it better not to get married at all because he is obliged to tell his parents he got married ? (Announcing marriage) Or if he thinks that girl seems to be a good Muslimah, he better not let her go ? Because it might be good them to get married even if they keep contacting through internet for a while, maybe for some years, cant predict.
