Spouse relation

Q:

Aoa !

My question to the worthy scholar is that what is the rulling of Islam in a case where wife does not or is not living with husband from day one because of her demand of expelling husbands severe ill parents from the house. Is husband liable to pay her expenditures when she is not living with him. What about rulling of mehar / property in this case .

JazakALLAH

A:

Wa `alaykum As-Salamu waRahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

You have the right to refuse to provide maintenance for her; however, you cannot withhold maintenance and support if she is caring for your children.

Having said this, I would advise you against making any rash decisions. You should go for professional Islamic counseling.

She may be motivated to change and return; however, you also need to think that caring for your parents is mainly your responsibility; you can only expect her to cooperate with you or help you in doing that. In other words, you should never expect it as her responsibility as your wife.

Almighty Allah Knows best.
