Can a woman have it stipulated in the marriage contract that her husband-to-be will be barred from marrying another wife? Is it allowed in the same scenario above, that her husband-to-be can be temporarily barred from contracting a second marriage, in a span of, let's say, 10 years?


Answered by

Sheikh Nâyif al-Hamad, presiding judge at Rimâh District Court

The woman may stipulate a condition in the marriage contract that her husband may not marry another woman. Such a condition must be made before the marriage contract or while executing it.

If the man violates this condition, then the woman will have the right to terminate the marriage contract.

And Allah knows best.
