Nikaah now marry later
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: please help me give us a solution as 2 years is a vry long time give us a solution so that we can get married as soon as possible
Dear and beloved sister in Islam, the only lawful solution which would allow you and your fianc to meet and talk to your hearts content is to convince your parents to perform your Nikaah as soon as possible, and solemnize the marriage at a later date even if it be after two years.
This way the wish of both parties: you and your fianc, and that of your parents will be honored.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
