Q: Should one marry right after settling down financially? If his brother and parents are in financially not well, and wants to support them for the time being can he delay his marriage? and after marriage is the wife his primary responsibility or parents too have the equal right? If a man wants to buy a house should he register it on the name of his wife or mother? Who has more right over this issue?
A: If he is certain that he will not fall in haraam he may delay his marriage.
The parents also have the equal right.
Registering is a legal requirement. For a legal requirement he may do that which is to his advantage.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
