Getting Married. Almost every Muslim will do it. It's half of the religion.
It's a legal contract, but it's also, ultimately, a spiritual act. Everyone
you know will have plenty of advice for you on the who, how and when of it.
Experts say that if you can survive the first three years, you are likely to
stay together as a couple. Marriage should be a simple process. Yet, many
struggle to navigate through the initial stages of finding a suitable partner
and the relationship. Help is here. If you're planning to get married, have
children of marriageable age, and don’t know how or what to prepare for this
new venture in your life? Then, this course is for you!
