Question ID: 25493


My questions is related to the duties of a wife. Some women these days say that it is not the duty of a wife to cook and clean the house etc. and that if done, it is only for sawaab. This has become an issue of discussion with my future wife as she is of the belief that all duties should be shared since spouses are equal partners. For example, if I dont pick up a plate or help clean up after supper, this would lead her to feel that, since we’re equal, i am not showing any input to our duties as a couple, and that this could lead to resentment on her path. I might understand this if we were alone, but my mother and sister both help with these duties as well, after supper. Can mufti shed some light on this issue, even though it may seem extremely trivial ?

You are talking too much with your future wife.
Technically, she is correct, but also you technically do not have to pay for her medical expenses. Marriage is not to act on the pure text of contract but to give and take in harmony. Review your situation.
See "Gift to Groom" and "Gift to Bride".
