Living apart from one’s parents

Q: If the husband wants to live apart from his parents but the wife does not, can the husband still move out with his wife and child?


A: The husband should find out from his wife the reasons for which she does not wish to move out. Perhaps her not wishing to move out is based on valid reasons.

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