Getting married without the consent of one’s elders

Q: I want to marry a girl. My family and the girl is ready but her family after too much effort is not agreeing. The girl is now separate and totally disconnected from her family. Can I marry her with the will of my family?


A: It is not advisable that she marries without the consent of her elders.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
