"Among His signs is that He created for you spouses of your own kind in order that you may repose to them in tranquility and He instilled in your hearts love and affection for one another; verily, in these are signs for those who reflect (on the nature of the reality)." (Ar-Rum 30: 21).
"Marriage in Islam is intended to cater to multiple purposes which include, above all, spiritual tranquility and peace, and cooperation and partnership in fulfilling the divine mandate. Islam – being a natural way of life – takes into account all of genuine human instincts such as physical, spiritual, intellectual, emotional, et cetera. Although fulfilling one’s physical needs in a decent manner is one of the main purposes of marriage, it is not the sole one." - Sh. Yusuf al-Qardawi
note: May Allah's Eternal Blessings bestow upon you guys. Love is giving and taking in a daily situation and being patient with each others needs and desires. Be good to each other and put Allah in front of all decisions, so that the decisions will purely be based on the intention of getting His LOVE.
