|Question ID 2091 - Family issues
|As salam un alaikum,
A women has 2 boys in good health from her husband. But her husband wants a girl too, and wants to try once again. But the wife is against it. I have 3 questions for this issue.
a. Can the wife refuse her husband this trial as she is not prepared for it physically, mentally and in any other way. However there is no danger to her health.
b. If the doctor has refused her to have a third child and the husband considers this as a lie and is forcing her to have a child. There is danger to her life her. What should she do in this case.
c. Can she ask for a divorce in any of the above 2 conditions if the husband is adamant to have a girl child with her only.
|Answer:- Husband is not allowed to force his wife to be pregnant, but she must allow
him to sleep with her when ever he needs if there no religious or health
restrictions . She is free to use pills or any medication preventing
pregnancy as far as it does not disturb husband from his sexual rights as a
husband with his wife.
It is good for the wife to obey her husband in this matter as well, if
there is no risk on her life from pregnancy.
This difference does not make reason for Talaq. You will be then harming
the future of the two children beside destroying you family.
