Wa'laykum Salaam wa Rahmahtullahi wa Barakatuh, May Allah relieve your situation, your heart, and your illness and bring your marriage back to what makes Allah pleased, Ameen.

What your husband is doing has nothing to do with Islam allowing a man to marry, one wife or more than one wife. He is using the fact that Islam does allow him to marry more than one wife as an excuse or in a way as a defense to show that his actions are allowable.

Perhaps a loose example of this can be seen in the following.. If a person eats too much they do not have a problem with the fact that Allah made food permissible. They have a problem with going to extremes and not controlling themselves. If a person wants to work as a delivery man it is not permissible for him to delivery alcohol to stores. Because it is permissible to drive, and work, and deliver things isn't the problem. The problem here would be that you cannot help others make sin.

For the man he must be aware of this. Is it a trick from Shaytan? Or is it actually that he is trying to do something that Allah made lawful. Because a man may want to marry his first wife or second wife it doesn't give him the freedom to disobey Allah. And maybe it is Shaytan tricking him to tell him that he will marry her, but he only keeps sinning. May Allah help us and him. Ameen.

If he wanted to marry a woman then he could have done it, and you would not have objected so much. But he lied to you. And he is the second husband you had that lied to you. The first matter is that you have to think about remaining married to him because of all of this. And these are major sins that he is committing in Islam. It could very well be that he will harm you again as your first husband did. The issue of being in a plural marriage is the second matter here for you. Solve the first problem you have, then you can move to the second problem.

You can read about plural marriages if you wish from the viewpoint of a Muslim sister who has written a book. ... ynynew.pdf
