 My wife said that she will let me have a second wife if I increase her allowance from 5 to 10 000 a month. If I enter this agreement with her before I marry, do I still have to give my second wife the same amount in being equal or can I give her a normal allowance of 5 000?

A: It is compulsory that you show equality between your wives.

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