Question: Dear Imam. I want to get my nikah done to someone who my parents approve of now and do the wedding function in 2 or 3 yrs because we are studying. is this ok? Is it permissible for us to visit each other as we will be like husband and wife. But back home they usually don't do this. We want to do this so we don't do anything wrong. please advise.
Answer:

Once the nikah (Islamic marriage contract) is done, Islamically speaking, you are lawful for one another, and therefore, there is nothing wrong for you in meeting and being intimate with each other--even though the wedding reception has not taken place.

Please see my previous answer on this for details.
