Referring to marriage as 'perfecting religion'

Q: Is it legally correct for someone who wants to get married to say that he wants to fulfill the other half of his religion; meaning marriage?

A: The Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him) pointed out that marriage is desirable and it is one of the Sunan done by Allah's messengers. Men can, through marriage, overcome many evil trends. Marriage helps a person lower their gaze and keep their virtuousness, as was explained by the Prophet (peace be upon him). It was reported by Al-Hakim in his book called Al-Mustadrak on the authority of Anas as a Hadith Marfu` (a Hadith narrated from the Prophet with a connected or disconnected chain of narration): "Whoever Allah grants a righteous wife has been assisted (by Allah) to adhere to half of his religion, so let him obey Allah in the second half." It was also reported by Al-Bayhaqy in his book Al-Shu`ab on the authority of Al-Raqashy that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "When a man marries, he has fulfilled half of his religion, so let him fear Allah regarding the remaining half."
