Families delaying marriage

Q: I am in love with a Muslim girl. Both of our families know about us and we always force them to get us married, but they are delaying without reason. I earn more than enough to run a family. Both our families said that they will arrange our marriage in the year 2020.

We want to make it halal by marrying according to Islamic rules. Will our nikaah be valid if we get married without informing our family?

A: Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
