Marriage should be made for God and should be based on love and compassion
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar’s A9 TV interview on March 14th, 2015
Some people are honest and some are not. You live for the consent of God, but some people only seek to strike it rich; some people hunt for husbands and marriage. They so hope to find a fool to saddle on. I’m saying this only for some people with that kind of rationale, seeking an opportunity to saddle on. This is very humiliating. Marriage should be for love, mercy, compassion and for God. It should not be with a mentality like, “Let me find a fool to saddle on.” And some want to saddle on as a family and that’s even worse. Some young men are also like that, seeking for a rich girl to become a son-in-law living in his wife's parents' house for free food and all. I’ve seen such men; they are very strange. You’d pity them. They are in their pyjamas and slippers going after his parents in-law, “My dear father, my dear mother.” People despise such people all the time. They humiliate themselves for a dish of food. Even if they were rich, one would never enter into such an insulting situation. But they are like this if there is a lot of money and other interests.
Some hearts are treacherous. Some hearts are holy. Some hearts are rebellious and some hearts are blessed. Women with blessed hearts, their hearts are very beautiful and open to love. Those who are treacherous always grovel. They grovel for no reason. They always hunt for husbands and such. This is very humiliating. You are a grown- up woman, but you want to take shelter somewhere to get yourself looked after, like a cat or any other animal. You don’t have any love or respect or fear of God. All right, marriage is something nice, but it is for the good will of God as an act of worship but you are looking for a fool. This is terrible. For example, there are also young men like this, looking for rich girls and if they are rich, they stick to them like a stamp. This is wrong.
Marriage is not about becoming a burden on or to rub someone. It is also not to steal from a man as a family or it is not to say that you love a girl just to steal her money.
