Islamic marriage advice and family advice

Can we get married?

Can I marry a woman that has been separated for 12 and we don't  know where her husband is at? We looked everywhere but we can't locate the husband. Since they haven't been together for 12 aint she free from her oath? Can she marry another man without divorcing the other one? please and thank

oumar

    Depending on where you live, a legal marriage requires a legal process to terminate it. I'd advise that she contacts a lawyer in her country and asks how to go about divorcing her husband. Many countries have legal processes to apply for a divorce in absentia if the other party cannot be found.

    In the meantime though, you both need to make sure you are observing appropriate Islamic limits in your interactions.
