According to Kharofa, (2004), “marriage is a contract between a man and a woman, whom he can legally marry, with the aims of establishing joint life and of procreation” (p. 25). However, the question is, how about couples that are married at an early age especially those who are still studying? In Islam, early marriage is allowed to be practiced but “if there is any problem in the marriage, it is not because of Islam per se, but we must examine other surrounding factors as well” (Ahmad, 2013, p. 25). Many people are not concerned about early marriage. However, they should investigate and do some research about this before they say anything about it. Actually, early marriage will be the best solution that a couple could take if they know what early marriage actually is, why they do it and how to face all the possible problems that they will get before and after the marriage.
