I don't know sisters, I'm in saudi Arabia, where am I going rto know sisters in a segregated country.
But when I hear a sister say she won' t marry a person unless he is specifically over 30 it makes me wonder I heard of something like that before). Because I don't necessarily match a persons maturity to their age but I do see how age can mean that a person has gone through experiences and is accustomed to more life experiences. As for personality, that doesn't necassarily need age...In other words, I am trying to say that a person can be more mature and perhaps more compatable then somebody older. But that requires maturity on both sides I guess. Maturity is more important to me than age...within reasonable limits.
I never said anything about molding sister. Is that how it came off as? I meant and still mean that a man needs to a woman that will respect his decisions as a husband and man regardless as if she religiously takes the same ways. For example, the father wants his children to go to Qur'anic school and she is christian, a good wife will accept it and even wake up the kids for salah. I wouldn't marry a hchristian ever because muslimaat come first. But I hope the point is clear now. Religion and love both keep people happy together, not one without the other.
