Sister in Islaam,

Marriage is a lifelong commitment. Consider the various aspects of compatibility. Do not rush into a marriage if you are not completely happy with the prospective. If you feel inclined to the man in reference, make istikhaarah and consult with your parents.

And Allaah Ta’aala Knows Best.
