Can a woman marry a man who commits fornication?


Is it okay for a woman who is a virgin to marry a man who commits fornication specifically if she doesn’t know and finds out later? She asks him to repent and despite getting married he continues this sinful practice.



Marrying a fornicator is not Haraam, it is Makrooh (not recommended). Secondly, the rule is the same whether a girl who wants to marry him is virgin or not. Also, if he has repented and no longer commits the sin of fornication, then its not even Makrooh to marry him.
