Some Muslims make their marriage more about fulfilling manmade cultural traditions than about fulfilling an Islamic sacred vow before Allah. It becomes about who can spend the most, have the best dresses, fanciest decorations, food, dj, music, obscene dancing, etc. Something which should become extra religious becomes extra egotistical.
Why spend huge amounts of money you don’t have just to impress people who barely matter? Let’s keep our weddings within our means. Islam over culture. Marriage shouldn’t be such a burden on the couple and their families. Many of these people getting married aren’t even together after a few years it seems. I wonder if adding huge debts to their lives is really making for a good marriage? I think not. I don’t need 500 people to be at my wedding. Family including cousins and aunts, uncles, can come. And close friends I know. And no, you can’t all bring a guest I don’t know. Get over it. I’m not having a bunch of freeloaders talking loudly I’ve never met who don’t even bring a gift.
Develop yourself while you’re young, so you can get married soon, and avoid pointless dating with people you don’t really love or plan to marry. There is no “let me live my life” period in Islam where you party at the club every weekend, do drugs and get drunk, sleep with strangers, etc. Every phase of our lives is important.
Let’s keep our marriages within our means. Marriage is for Allah SWT first and foremost, not what this or that Aunty or cousin thinks. You barely see them anyways. Screw what they think.
I care what Allah thinks.
