Answer

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

And if you fear that you will not deal justly with the orphan girls, then marry those that please you of [other] women, two or three or four. But if you fear that you will not be just, then [marry only] one or those your right hand possesses. That is more suitable that you may not incline [to injustice]. (Chapter 3 Verse 4)

“a woman is married for her deen, her wealth or her beauty. You must go for the one with deen, may your hands be in the dust!(if you fail to heed)” [muslim}

Ali (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him)reported that the Prophet(Alayhis salam) said to hi “o Ali! Do not postpone three things: prayer when it is time for it, funeral when it is ready and the marriage of an unmarried women when a suitable match is found.”[Ahmad 828, Ibn e Majah 1486]

From the above we can see that it is an emphasised sunnah to marry 2,3 or 4 wives. We can also see the importance of marrying a woman for her deen and lastly, it is at the least disliked to delay the nikaah without a valid reason.
