Marriage is a gift, a special bond between man and woman, husband and wife. Much has been written about how we should behave towards Muslim women after marriage, but no texts are more appropriate than the teachings of the Holy Qur'an and the traditions of the Prophet of Islam (saw). With Online Muslim Matrimonial, we have attempted to bring together information on marriage etiquette from a variety of sources, which we hope will guide and inspire you.
And one of His signs is that He created mates for you from yourselves that you may find rest in them, and He put between you love and compassion; most surely there are signs in this for a people who reflect. [Holy Qur'an, Surah ar-Rum 30:21]
There has not been created any institution in Islam which is more favoured and dearer to Allah than marriage. [The Prophet of Islam (saw)]

"A man who is not married, even though he may be wealthy is surely poor and needy; and the same is true for a woman." The Prophet of Islam (saw)

"The sleep of a married person is better with Allah than an unmarried one who fasts during the day and keeps vigil at night, establishing prayers." The Prophet of Islam (saw)

Everyone has different expectations from Online Muslim Matrimonial website but it is important that these expectations are realistic. The happy ever after is achievable but we must remember that it takes time, patience and effort to build and maintain this strong marital bond. First and foremost, do not expect your life partner to be perfect. Only Allah (SWT) is perfect. Online Muslim Matrimonial website cannot be taken for granted because its service is free. It requires constant giving from both sides. Be honest and feel free to speak your mind but must be careful not to hurt other's feelings. Pay each other compliments and show appreciation for the things you expect in your future spouse. Problems between couples may arise from a lack of information in Online Muslim Matrimonial. Therefore it is important to discuss your future expectations beforehand. Such issues could include whether the wife will work outside the home, when the couple plan to have children soon, how they will work together to ensure a happy marriage. In marriage, the husband takes the lead. However, according to Islam, marriage is a partnership. Rather than being a dictator in the relationship, the husband is seen more as a shepherd who is responsible for and to his flock. In Islam, a leader is one who serves, manages, provides and nourishes and does so with humbleness and humility.
