Spending equal nights with each wife

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: My husband spends 4 nights with his first wife and 3 nights with me. Out of one of the 4 nights with his first wife, he sleeps in a separate bed in another room but under the same roof. Is that counted as 4 nights or 3 nights?

Bismillaah

A: The more fair thing will be that if he sleeps in a separate room in the same house as the first wife then he must do the same in your house.

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