How long should a man wait after first marriage before marrying an additional wife?




 


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم


In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Answer:

Walaikumusalam

A man is free to marry another woman whenever he wishes, but he should be mindful to ponder over whether this second marriage is actually feasible and practical in his current situation. Similarly, he should inform his first wife to avoid unnecessary consequences.

Only Allah Ta’ala knows best.
