26. Is it permissible for a man to marry a female who is being supported by the government of her country (welfare, etc), and after marriage the female continues to receive this governmental support on the basis that she is single and if she informs the government that she is married, she will no longer receive these funds. Is this action on concealment permissible?
Answer: No, if the female is married, she can no longer conceal this from the government in order to continue to receive governmental funding. If she does so, this is considered lying and therefore not permissible.
