Yes the proposed ceremony is the nikah I believe, and does not involve signing a marriage certificate I believe.
Does the Muslim religious marriage ceremony hold any weight in British law? Please could you advise me. Anne.
Yes he lives with me quite a bit, yet retains a room in a house that his relatives own a mile away from me. I have two properties in my sole name, and am naturally concerned about the situation. He contributes to some of the bills occasionally. What are the rights of co-habitees? Could he put a 'Home Rights Notice' on my properties? I know he could if we married in a register office. I am most anxious that I do everything to safeguard my properties. I have three adult children, two of whom live with me. He does not own a property in his sole name. His family removed his name off some properties that he had his name, and he had worked hard to pay the mortgage on, on the deeds, to avoid paying his former 'wife' ( a forced marriage and a ' nika ' ceremony again), any money.
I would be most grateful for your help. Anne.
