One year ago i married my lovely husband without a marriage contract but in front of about 20-30 witnesses from my husbands family in morocco and a lovely iman who came and blessed our marriage.
Since then his sisters and parents are very jealous of us both and picking holes in our marriage. Firstly they say its not valid because we did not have a dowry. I am 47 years old and married before but my husband died. My husband is a little younger at 34. We recently had our first baby still born and this was the start of all this nonsense. We are extremely happy and in love and we did not commit any haram acts before our marriage. My husband gave me a dowry to stop them going on nasty to me but now this is paid they find something else to complain about. This time it is that we did not have a written contract. As far as we are concerned we married with love and great intentions with all his family there and happy and agreeing. Just after we lose our baby does all this nasty behaviour start. I feel they are picking at any point to say our marriage is not valid so they can tell him to leave me. We are in love and married and whether our son died or not we still have a son. He will never never leave me and i will not leave him.
Are they right our marriage is not valid please???
