Ask The Imam Question and Answer

671 Muslim men are eligible second marriages. So is it necessary that the person should get divorced with first wife and get married with someone else? Can't he live with both the wives?

I came to know that, the person who wants to do second marriage he should have to take permission from the first wife and can get married with second without divorce. Is this compulsory? Taking permission from the first wife is mandatory?

Please let me know the exact procedure.
A Muslim man is permitted to take up to four wives in marriage at one time. He does not need to take permission; neither does he have to divorce any earlier wife(s). However it has to be taken in justice and equality. Talaaq (Divorce) is the most disliked of the permissible things.

The only requirement in taking more then one wife is, to do justice between them and to treat them equally.
