Can you provide any evidence that there is no need for it? 

2401. A man cannot marry the niece (brother's or sister's daughter) of his wife without her permission. But if he marries his nieces without his wife's permission, and she later consents to the marriage, it will be in order.

https://www.sistani.org/english/book/48/2348/

According to Sistani permission is requiref in only this case. Either this ^^ or the wife stipulates in the marriage contract that the husband will not take another wife but even that comes with conditions 

The rulings (fatāwāh) of the respected marāje‘, regarding whether the first wife can stipulate the condition that for the second marriage permission from the [first] wife is necessary, or stipulate the condition that in the case of remarriage, the wife possesses power of attorney (wakalah) for and can carry out the divorce herself, are:

Imam Khomeini, Ayatollah Bahjat, Khamenei, Fadhil, Makarim and Nuri say:
No, this condition is not valid or binding, unless there is a condition that: "the wife has power of attorney from the husband, that if the husband remarries, she can carry out divorce”, this is valid. (Imam Khomeini, Istafta’at, Vol. 3, Section on rules of marriage, Q. 55. Ayatollah Makarim Shirazi, Istafta’at, Vol. 2, p. 907. Ayatollah Khamenei, Istaftā’, Q. 7.  Ayatollah Fazel, Jama‘ al-Masā’il, Vol. 1, p. 1533.  Ayatollah Noori, Istafta’at, Vol. 2, p. 637 and Ayatollah Bahjat, Tūḍīḥ al-Masā’il, Q. 2534. 

Ayatollahs Tabrizi, Sistani and Safi say:

Yes, this condition is valid and binding, and if after the marriage, the husband does not act upon this condition and remarries, then he has committed a sin.  (Ayatollah Sistani, Minhāj al-Sālehīn, Vol. 2, Q. 333.  Ayatollah Tabrizi, Minhāj al-Sālehīn, Vol. 2, Q. 1395.  Ayatollah Safi, Jama‘ al-Ahkām, Vol. 2, Q. 5521. 
Ayatollah Wahid: according to obligatory precaution (Ihtīyāt Wājib), this condition is not valid and binding, unless there is a condition that: " the wife has power of attorney from the husband, that if the husband remarries, she can carry out divorce”, this is valid. (Ayatollah Wahid, Minhāj al-Ṣālehīn, Vol. 3, Q. 9531

Why don't you post it for me here?

If its a Muslim woman then it doesnt require the below ruling.

It depends on who he wants to do Mutah with. If its Ahlul Kitab then this ruling applies:

Question: A Muslim couple got separated for a long time. Is it permissible for him to marry, temporarily or permanently, a woman from Ahlul Kitab without the knowledge of his Muslim wife? Is it permissible for him to marry, with the permission of his Muslim wife?

Answer: For a Muslim man to marry a woman from Ahlul Kitab permanently is against the compulsory precaution in any circumstance. And his temporary marriage to a Jewish or a Christian woman is allowed, only if he is not already married to a Muslim wife. If he has a Muslim wife, temporary marriage with an Ahlul Kitab woman is not permissible without her consent; nay, even with her consent, it is not permissible, based on compulsory precaution.

- She doesn't want to go.

Bring a treadmill home man. Also buy some dumbells (very heavy ones).

Even if she agrees somehow, she cannot go due to some home chores.

Instead of wasting time getting 6 packs, why don't you do the house chores so your wife can get some time to exercise.

If you intend to do mut'ah with a kitabi female then you need your wfe's approval, and even after that it is against the obligatory precaution to marry them. That is according to Sistani.

But if you intend to do mut'ah with a Muslimah, that is different.

Why should I put myself in my wife's place. And why should I tell her? Women are emotionally pumped up in such situations and they won't easily allow their husbands to be shared with another woman. But men on the other hand are genetically programmed so that they are and can be at ease in romancing more than one woman. It is true and a fact. Allah the creator knows that.

You know what the best and amazing thing Allah designed in men... To stay strong!! Strong as a concrete wall... 

I am not here to judge you brother, i don't know what you are dealing with.. But here again you are a man, superior and free (in lots of matters) but you know what ,you are a covering\clothes for your wife.. Uncovering her or her issues will uncover you as well... So best thing is "consult with your better half" inshaaAllah it will drive you somewhere good!!

Dear Kazmi, you are partly right. i will never divorce her, even she asks for it I will try to avoid as much as possible but just for my children, not for abusing her. I never verbally abused her. I always talk to her and behave with her in very polite and humble manner. I give her proper money every month, more than a typical average-income house wife can dream of. I am assuming here that you don't mean reminding her about her bad shape is abusing.

You are psychologically abusing her. It shows in your attitude. You sound very arrogant about your looks and your money. You obviously think that you are better than her and you get attention from girls better than her. This hypocrisy is seen in [some] desi men. They hate their wives, give their love an affection to their mistresses but always keep their wives as servants and as punching bags. If you give so much money to your wife, why doesn't she hire maids? I know you will tell lies but some day if you are in a mode to hold yourself accountable, ask yourself these questions and try to answer honestly. 

How many hours per week your wife spends in house chores and taking care of your kids? 

How many hours per week you spend in working? How many hours you spend in gym and how many hours in entertainment where you get compliments? 

How many taunts, snide remarks your wife receives daily from you and all the relatives? How many compliments you receive? 

If one day you become paralyzed, you become confined to bed where you cannot move and you gain weight?  Your wife decided to stay with you, she becomes a saint among people and she starts getting compliments everyday. She starts exercising, becomes very slim and she starts getting compliments from men, she flirts with them in front of your eyes but insists on loving you and staying with you, how would you feel? 

Your wife is not here to tell her side if story. Even if she did try to tell her story, there's no concrete evidence for emotional and psychological abuse that can be presented. But from your posts, it's very obvious you are a hypocrite and arrogant person. You will never divorce her because if she ix not standing next to you, how will you get an ego boost from all the people telling you that you are a saint for staying with a wife who is so inferior to you.

I don't understand some people. If I was an overweight person, I would want you to shame me everyday about my weight so that I can be motivated to lose weight. I don't understand these guys that want people to remain obese and unhealthy and tell them to be happy about it lol

I don't understand why people cannot see that most women get overweight when they get pregnant. Not just the lazy women, not just the women who eat unhealthy, most women who are skinny and pretty, they get overweight. In the few years after giving birth, women lack sleep, they are stressed out and they are busy taking care if their children. So they don't have time and energy to plan their meals or spend hours in gym. For some people looks are important. For others, behavior is more important. A good looking man who thinks he is better than you, who is always insulting you looks like a blood sucking vampire. 

And since when body is so important for Muslim women? When I think about looks of a man, I can only think about a good looking face. I can never tell if a man does exercise or not because I don't watch terminator type movies, I don't know about biceps or any of that terminology.

What about divorce? 

Given how abhorrent divorce is considered to be in Islam and given also that mutah is acceptable, I'd imagine that the latter is the more preferable option from a fiqh point of view.

Take your wife to the gym.

Weight loss is not just a matter of exercise, it's about eating less. Sadly there comes a point where people associate happiness with eating.

Having wracked my brains about how to help this Bro and the wider Ummah I have come up with the following solution that may help both husband and wife and others in a similar situation.

Bro could try and spice things up by smearing himself with kheer and having her lick it off.

And some women are just plain lazy. They use kids as an excuse to eat and gain weight and keep the husbands tied to them because now they are the mother of his kids so they have a license to start looking fat and ugly.

If most guys helped their wife do the house chores(like the OP) then maybe the wife can get some time to exercise. 

It's easy to drop by to the gym and come home, seeing chicken biryani.

Yea those explainations would be legitimate if it wasn't for the fact that, yes, health issues for females happen after pregnancy and child birth, but they do not turn someone whose skinny and healthy into someone who is now 50% heavier then they used to be. This is an exception and not a regular occurance, so stop trying to brush this off as just another normal thing that happens to sisters after childbirth.

The body is not just important for the Muslim female, it is important for humans in general. Islam stresses healthiness. What kind of argument is this? You don't know gluttony is condemned?

I would love to meet a woman in our culture who has so much power that she is allowed to sit around instead of taking care of her kids AND she is keeping her husband tied to her against his will. In the OP's case, that's not happening. He wants to keep her.

Well it's just my word vs your word. This is not an exception, it does happen. Most women do get over weight after having kids. 

If gluttony is condemned, then higher sex drive is also condemned. Looks are important but fulfilling responsibilities is much more important. Even men who really earn halal living, work hard at their jobs and go through stress, start looking old in few years.

Then you haven't met enough women back home. Desi men aren't cruel and desi women and not oppressed so please stop generalising.  (This is coming from someone who was married to a physically abusive man,so I can be anything but biased towards desi men here)

What's stopping women from taking care of kids and remaining fit? There is only one reason (other than any medical problems) lack of self control and laziness.Obesity isn't just being over weight. It's an irresponsible mindset.

I have been married,had kids, have worked(job +100% of the housework) and gotten a degree and haven't been over weight a day in my life. I have a over a dozen colleagues who will tell you the same.

Seriously, how many minutes does it take to do planks? Or run up and down the stairs?

Thats the thing, it's not. 

Women have a choice,you want to try and please your husband (and earn sawab equal to jihad and fasting) or you want to drive them away. 

I am not saying men won't stray but then they would be the ones answerable.

That doesn't make any sense. One type of carnal desire is condemned but another type of carnal desire is good. Also, every time  a woman posts about abusive behavior of her husband and in-laws, people are quick to tell her she is doing gheebat. Now the OP and other people are calling her wife lazy, irresponsible, making inappropriate jokes about a na mehram Muslim woman and all this is not gheebat?
