Disclosing health problems when getting one's children married

Q: My girls have some health problems like thyroid and cholesterol. Do I need to disclose them or hide them at the time of their marraige. Since my marriage is in trouble and my husband is against marrying the girls early, what would be appropriate for me to do? I feel that our house is not favorable for them to flourish and they don't have any social life and they are Alhamdu-Lillah very good girls. They already suffer my health issues and our divorce issues since they are 5. I want to marry them early (early teen) so that they can lead pious lives.


A: If you feel that it can create a problem later on in the marriage, you may disclose it to them.

And Allah Ta'ala knows best.
