Is it necessary for women to get married

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Is it necessary for women to get married?

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

Answer

The ruling on marrying is split up into the following categories:

 

Obligatory (Farz): This is when an individual has an overwhelming level of sexual desire in a way that he/she is certain of committing adultery.
Necessary (Wajib): This is when an individual has such sexual desires in a way that one fears committing adultery or cannot prevent himself from masturbation.
Sunnat Muakkadah: This is for an individual who is in a moderate state. His sexual desires are not overwhelming like in the above two situations.
Severely Disliked (Makruh Tahrimi): This is for an individual who fears being unjust or oppressive to the spouse, even if there is a strong urge of sexual desires.
Unlawful (Haraam): This is when one is certain of being unjust and unfair to his wife. (Raddul Muhtar p.63-67 v.4

In regards to your question, if the girl’s situation is of the first two categories it will be necessary for her to get married.

Only Allah Knows Best.
