Assalamualaikum. In the name of Allah, the mercy and the benevolent.
I have acquainted with a woman who went to my school. We are both 24 years old. We have gotten to know each other over the past 8 months or so and we have both agreed that we would like to get married. She has converted to Islam on my guidance and this has pleased me more than anything. She is still learning the basics.
We are both still university students in our penultimate years. Only once we have completed university ,(even then it is not guaranteed), and secured a job, will we be able to get married and move in together.
MY QUESTION IS, are we allowed to get married and live in my parents home (with my parents and siblings). We have a 6 bedroom house and 4 floors so space is not an issue and everyone in my family is loving and caring and we have strong relationships with one another., so I am sure she would fit right in.
One of the main reasons I want to get married is because I do not want to behave as we are married when we are not, as I know this is not allowed. But it is getting more and more difficult for us both and I am afraid that in taking 2 years to get married, something will go wrong and I will not be able to put it back together again.
I appreciate who ever reads this and advises me. May Allah bless you.
