Is it impermissible to search for a husband on internet marriage website?

Answer

The internet is a means for acquaintance provided we abide by public morals. As for marriage, a man should ask the woman’s guardian for her hand in marriage and the guardian is to ask around about the suitor’s circumstances, reputation and the like. He must also consider the matter of compatibility between the two parties.
