I'm a revert to Islam. When I married I was sunni, I've recently converted to Shiaism. Now my question is about the validity of my marriage contract. Whats the status of the marriage if you didn’t have nikkah paperwork and you were not given any knowledge on stipulations and your rights as a muslim wife. We don't have any nikkah paperwork. All that happened is we got married in a very small mosque, since my father is Christian they appointed someone from the mosque for my Wali. And basically just asked if I wanted to marry him and I said yes. That was it. There was no niikah paperwork signed.

Your marriage is valid according to Islamic Law, so don’t worry about that. Your children are legitimate.
