Please advise as to what are the rights of wife in Islam if the husband intends on taking a second wife. I have a clear understanding that I cannot stop him and that he must fulfill the rights of both women.(thats up to him) however, since I cannot even stand the thought of sharing my husband with another woman and I’m committed to him very much, as a last resort I would rather come out of his Nikkah. Please advise what is my way out of this situation since it has caused a lot of pain to both parties and I am adamant about not being in his nikkah if he goes ahead since I am very emotionally torn up and heartbroken. Whether incorrect or not I still feel hurt and betrayal at his intention. I think also its too late for us to continue our marriage since I am depressed, I cannot live with his betrayal and still love and serve him the way allah swt has commanded me to. Since I am unable to fulfill his rights purely because of the hurt I feel and my broken heart I feel it would be better for me to come out of this marriage and allow him the opportunity to be happy with her instead. please do not misunderstand, this is the husband i have given my life and dedication to. please advise what are my rights, how can I leave this nikkah without breaking Allaah set laws? ( I know talaaq is permissible but detested) but I can’t go on like this.
