Imaam Ash-Shanqeeti (rahimahullaah) stated:

Women are all readily prepared for marriage (i.e. what a woman needs regarding this affair is a man whom she agrees to marry without any pressure, force or blackmail; who provides for her and lives with her honourably); whereas many men do not have the ability to fulfil the requirements of marriage due to poverty.  (i.e. many men are prevented from marriage due to poverty, whereas there are married men who can provide for more than one woman). Those prepared for marriage amongst men are fewer than those amongst women. A woman is not hindered, whereas a man is hindered by poverty and the ability to fulfil the requirements of marriage (i.e. to provide for his wife). [See Adwaa Al-Bayaan’ Surah Al-Israa’ Ayah 9]
