Answer

(Fatwa: 764/737/N=1433)

You should spend 3 or 3.5 months in Europe with your wife there and spend the same duration with your wife in Pakistan. If this is practical for you then you should adopt it as in this case you will not have to divorce any wife and neither will you violate the rights of any of them.
