Taking a second wife

Q: I want to do second marriage… I like one lady and I asked my wifes permission many times but failed… She behaves abnormally and said that she will leave home with the kids and will never contact me etc. I want to get married since i like this lady and want to contact her in halaal way but in these conditions, I am so depressed. I never want to lose my first wife and on the other hand, I also dont want to lose my love. Sometimes I think about secret nikah and not declare it but I dont know what to do.


A: If you do not want to lose her then make nikaah with her.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
