Is My Nikah Valid?

Q:

I am happily married to my husband. But i have little bit of doubt. My parents took my consent before nikah ceremony. In nikkah ceremony i happily signed nikkah nama(marriage certificate) and accepted my husband from heart but by mistake i did my signature above the place where bride was suppose to do. In nikkah nama there is section where its written `bride signature’ and bride is suppose to sign below it and by mistake i signed above that place. Is the nikah valid?

A:

Salaam Alaykum,

The women’s consent is necessary and not the place of signature. 

The marriage is in order.

Regards,
