Answered according to Shafi'i Fiqh by Darul Iftaa Jordan
Is a wife considered sinful if she asked for divorce because her husband married another woman?

Answer:
A second marriage is lawful, and so it is impermissible for you to ask for divorce because of that. If you are certain that you won`t be able to deliver Allah`s rights and those of your husband`s , then it is permissible for you to ask for Khul`a(Divorce on the demand of the wife). However, you should exercise patience since after difficulties, there is easiness by the will of Allah.
