2nd marriage by husband : dv


I have filled 498a and DV on my husband and he send Talaqnama.

I had rejected his talaqnama, cases are running. My husband has done second marriage secretly.

Husband will be crossed in DV shortly.

My lawyer says he will focus on 2nd marriage so that he accept that he has done second marriage.

Will this strategy work...any advantage...what if he deny his 2nd to proove then.

Expert opinion please

Second marriage done by a muslim man during the subsistance of his first marriage i.e. without divorcing his first wife is not illegal, it is perfectly valid.

1. Marrying the second time is not an offence for a Muslim in India.

2. However having said that, it does amount to incalculable cruelty and torment to the first wife, which would be helpful in the DV Act  case. Hence your advocate's strategy is correct.

I will advise you to see fatwa-e-alamgiri.  I am sorry I have not read it but it may help you as I heard it deals with second marriage.
