l asked my cousin as if she accepts me in her nikkah and she said yes, we both said “yes” 3 times while chatting on whats app. So are we in nikkha with each other ?

Q:

Me and my cousin are in love with each other, i asked her as if she accepts me in her nikkah and she said yes, we both said “yes” 3 times while chatting on whats app. As we are 21 and 20 years old, we cannot do proper nikkah right now but fear that we may commit sin by having intercourse with each other.
We fully intend to get married properly as soon as we complete our studies but it will take 4-5 years.
But we accept each other in nikkah with heart and soul and have no problem to keep it a secret,
Question is that are we in of each other and can we do intercourse with each other with consent of each other and then we will get married properly after we complete our studies

A:

Thank you for your Question

Marriage is a very special knot. A man and woman cannot enter Into a marriage contract by simply accepting one another, rather, in Islam there is a way to do it.
Also,
A Girl who is a virgin needs her father or Paternal Grandfathers permission to marry.
