Second wife not being treated right

Question ID: 27379

Asalamu Aleikum,

I’m married for almost two years now as a second wife. The first wife leaves in another country so since we got married he come to me for a month and three months he stays where the first wife is but this time he extended his stay at the first wife it’s now five months and whenever I ask him he claims to be busy with work. He also told me not to mingle with his family and I’m not supposed to tell anyone about my problems whether it’s my family nor his family. This is really grinding me cause I’m really suffering and I can’t seek for advice from anyone.So yesterday his aunty took me out for coffee and I explained to her some of our problems and how he treats me. From there I became scared and started questioning myself what if the aunty goes and tell him. He will definitely punish me for that. So I explained to him briefly the conversation between me and his aunty. And he got upset with me. I’m really suffering and now his upset with me I don’t know what to do…. He doesn’t want me to mingle with anyone except my immediate family. Please advise Sheikh.

You should do as he says.

You can complain if he hurts you, swears you, hits you, does not financially maintain you, abuses you or does not fulfil conjugal rights.
