Let us discuss.

Suppose marriage would have been cheap and affordable, do you think zina rate would be declining?


How is Marriage is expensive? Having a huge wedding is not required and you could budget your own wedding after all. All you need to have a Islamic wedding that is all....If they are really that poor they should not be getting married at all anyways :roll:

Most Somali's around my age are drinkers or confused about there identity :idea: Most of them will end up having white chicks so it's their life if they decide to go the haraam way. :clap:

They mean having moderate Nikaax where the guy comes with his old men and they do the nikaax with simple meher then women having some cultural gurbaan, or buraanbur at night. it is very affordable. cost almost $ 2000 for xalwo and renting the hall and some casho.

I don't think marriage being expensive and zinna correlate.

Zinna is high at least here in the west because society openly accepts it as a norm.

Zinaha dunuubta ogu waaweyn bey ku jirta.Halka goor eed sineysatid wuxu la mid yahy 40tan goor oo xalaal ah.Ninka boqol naag oo kala nooc ah bartey hal naag kuma filna, marka waligi guursan maayo.It has nothing to do with mony huuno, imsa lacag haysto oo waligood guursan.Wax kasta waa imaanka.Hadaadan ilaahy ka baqaneen wax kasta waad ku dhaqaaqey.Self-control my friend self-control.Dont let ur desires taker over ur common sense.

waryaa sxb marriege is not expensive sxb. marriage there are basic thing whichyou most have before you marry,
first you have to have apartment
second you most a JOB¨.
third waa inaad awoodaa inaad ALAABTA guriga soo iibin kartid(NINKA) SIDA sariirta, kuraasta iyo FURNITURE'
ugu danbeeyntii NIKAAXA xoogaa duco ah lacagta lagu sameeynaayo waa inaad awoodaa,

marka waa intaas guurka, wax sidaa u weeyn qaali u ah ma aha.

Marriage is not expensive at all, seriously I don't know what part of the country you're from but here Columbus Ohio doesn't take much for a marriage, all you have to do is invite some local sheiks over for dinner have both the parents on both sides of those that are getting married and within couple hrs, It's done and over with, that whole tradition of sending the girl's parents the money, is a different situation for a different day, now a days you can put that on layaway.

I was recently invited a Meher where the bride asked $$45,000 for her Meher. They said the Meher was much higher than that but after a long negotiation the lady agrees to reduce Meherkeeda! Plus their wedding costed more than $25,000. Now that is actually too much if you ask me. They could have utilized this money in a better ways than just wasting it one night. Waxaa kaloo intaas aad u geysaa Kharashaadka kale ee ku bixi doona Guriga ay degi doonnaan!
