Yeah I think it would definitely show a lot of ppl who think they want to get married don’t actually want to get married. It is a good screening process. Especially for people that just met, it’s crazy how many ppl get married to someone they haven’t even known for a yearThey did this in Malaysia and made it mandatory for all newly-weds after divorce became so rampant it got out of control.
It was a huge success, divorce dropped significantly.
In a world that promotes individualism, selfishness and consumerism
People develop crazy wild expectations of marriage and think what they see in those films or those couple tag lies on YouTube are real.
Now couple that with emotional, psychological and physical weakness that is induced by living in a society that is free of any real struggles or hardships.
It becomes close to virtually impossible to maintain a healthy marriage in this day and age.
I used to argue to make this mandatory in our community, no sheikh would do nikah without a certificate showing both people completed premarital courses.
There are some excellent Somali ones out there, and one of the ways you can personally check if you need is to look at your reaction to it, if you mock it or believe it's beneath you, then you are the one who needs it the most.
