What is Obligatory upon Husband towards Wife in Terms of Housing

I married my second wife a year ago, however, she insists that I register the apartment where she lives in her name and tries to force me to do so by starting trouble and staying at her parents`. She does so because she thinks that this is her right according to the rules of Sharia. Is this really her right taking into consideration the fact that I have a first wife and five children and don`t want to be unjust to any of my heirs?

Ruling on Investing in Halls Used for Holding Parties and Wedding Receptions

What is the ruling on building a hall to be rented for holding different social events and wedding receptions? This is taking into consideration the fact that many violations of Sharia take place during these events; however, we will include a number of Sharia conditions upon signing the rent contract. Does doing so clear us from liability before Almighty Allah as we have no authority to ban any violations of Sharia?
