Unfortunately, many Muslim families living in poverty struggle to marry their sons and daughters.
The first biggest reason for young adults not getting married is Poverty. Poverty is such a disease which stops you from thinking further than your next meal. Thousands of these families are worried about where their next meal is going to come from and the last thing on their minds is to arrange the marriage ceremony of their son or daughter.
The second biggest reason for the lack of marriages among young adults is the ignorance and cultural constraints such as high dowry demands from the bride side and extortionate demands for household goods from the groom’s side of the family. This results in millions of women and men living their lives with a soulmate.
The third and the final reason for lack of marriages is the custom of spending extortionate amount of money on wedding ceremonies. This stops many parents from thinking about marrying their children at an early age and when these children at the time go into their 30s and 40s it almost becomes impossible to find a life-partner for them.
