Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatu. I hope ye are all well. Seeking genuine advice here.. I hope others can learn from responses too.
I was told it is best not to marry someone in isolation i.e. marrying someone, not knowing their friends or family well. This is because if problems were to arise in the marriage, it may be difficult to seek counsel or advice from a third party both you and your partner respect and know well.
With this is mind, it sometimes worries me to marry or show interest in brothers that live very far away or are of a different culture. I know this is not a good reason to reject a proposal so I am asking you.. how can people like myself practically tackle such an issue?
