  • I seriously don’t understand when a girl got her periods. She is attracted to opposite gender. If she can start a romantic relationship why not nikkah. If a girl or a boy is willing I think they should get married. Make nikkah easy and zina difficult. We have to change our attitude toward this issue. And yes everything has its own pros and cons. But there are difficulties even when you get married after 25,30 or 40.
