Salaam alaykum,

 

My wife took the initiative. It makes sense too, if you understand what my financial situation was at the time. I had (and still have, astagfirillah) lots of school debt and I was leaving my part time research job to go find a professional job. So I was basically in debt and unemployed, and I didn't think it would be right of me to ask any girl's hand in marriage if I couldn't support them.

 

Anyway, when I finally met my wife, I explained all of this to her in full detail, but she didn't really care. She wanted to marry to protect herself, complete her deen, and so on and so forth and felt that Allah (SWT) would take care of the rest. I agreed.

 

We got married two months later. The story gets better though.

 

The first four months of marriage, I had no job, but we didn't want to move in with my parents. I know a lot of Muslims do this, but I simply wasn't down with that. Still, we decided to go it alone at our college campus. The first four months, we lived off the money and gifts we received from the wedding.

 

At the start of the next year, just when I was going to try and get a job at just about anywhere, one of our Muslim professors called me and got me a job with the school as a researcher again, and I was pulling down more money than the first time I was a researcher (about $1700 a month for 20 hours a week of work).

 

Anyway, I did that for 10 months until I was just recently hired in November by Motorola, just in time for baby.

 

All of this is from Allah (SWT). I didn't do anything except keep turning to Him (SWT), and even the fact that I kept turning to Him (SWT) was from Him (SWT) for keeping me on this path.

 

Siraaj

what's even cuter is how the financial problems make a marriage even more stronger, b/c that's when you're most vulnerable and you know that someone is there for you no matter what.....that's the most sweetest thing

Ya, I gotta say too, that's an amazing story. I'm really glad you shared it with us. Alhumdullilah, good to hear things are good and stable now. Hijabi_baji5's probably right, I'm sure it makes a couple stronger after going through such an adventure. And ya, thanks for the advice (from your second post). :wink: You're right, every guy does wish for such a happy story. :rolleyes:
