Islamic marriage advice and family advice

Tag Archive for ‘consummate’

My ex-husband divorced me once, then I married another man & consummated it 6 months later. Is it valid?

Firstly, I was married a few years back. And sadly things didn’t work out with my husband. Therefore, we both divorced each other after being together for three years. We both went to the Imam separately and signed the papers. He didn’t verbally divorce me 3 times. But said it to the Imam and in front of a witness.


Divorce or Keep Secret Nikkah

I have a situation and I really need help. I live in north American society and I met a beautiful muslim girl 3 years ago. After meeting her couple of times I proposed her and consulted with my parents. My parents spoke to her parents. I was 20 at that time. Her parents did not want to get her married to me at that time and did not say yes or no to my parents. To avoid any problems and thinking both parents will agree any time we decided to have our nikkah done in secret (without a wali). During the 3 years period of nikkah we had intercourse only once.
