Me and my distant distan distant cousin were sort of raised together. He is older than me by a year and a half. Ever since we were young people around us kept telling us we will marry each other. We've kind of grown up to the fact that we were meant for each other and now ( teenagers) we are in love so much. Both of our parents know that. we both are very good muslims, we do our prayes and fasting. We never go out alone, we never touch or kiss. But we just hold so much love for each other and we promised ourselves that we were going to marry each other hopefully when we are older.
So i just wanted to ask if what we have is Haram? Because i've read on some other places that love is sickness and that its bad and that we should avoid it however we can. But i cant believe it because i see nothing weong in something so pure. Thanks in advance :)
