I Will Never be Ready for Marriage

15 August, 2017
Q Salam. What does Islam say if a girl does not want to get married at all in life? Is there any hadith related to this subject? I am mentally ill but look normal from outside. My parents are pressuring me very much to get married due to social and cultural views despite knowing about my mental problems. I feel I am not ready now and I think that I won’t ever be ready for marriage. I can’t marry by pressure. Please tell me what Islam says about this subject.
