Marrying a married woman

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have a girl that I love, we’re both Muslims. She is married to a family very close to mine though we can still marry because people do it before, but now she is saying that we cannot marry because our families are too close. She gave birth to a girl in another family before re-marrying to this current family… I don’t want to commit zina. What should I do?

A: If she is already married, how can you marry her? Sincerely, repent to Allah Tala for this haraam relationship and make a firm determination that you will never repeat this in the future.

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