Q: When I met my wife and asked her hand in marriage, she agreed but we committed zina before she introduced me to her parents and before we were joined together. She was pregnant when we were joined together. What is the status of our marriage and the first child? When is marriage said to have taken place in Islam or when are the two lawful to have sex?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
