Question: Being Hanafi, can I buy seafood for my Shafi’i wife?

Answer: assalamu alaykum

This would be permitted as seafood – even that which Hanafis deem prohibitively disliked – is considered permissible according to the majority of scholars and it would be rather tedious and potentially burdensome to state that a Hanafi cannot buy such food for his Shafi’i wife.
