Is it harram for the male to cook food? You're clearly an ungrateful person. Your wife is busy making you delicious food, while you just keep doing ab crunches. Now you're proud of your six packs and feel that your wife is not up to your standards. 

Now you complain about her not having time to go to the gym because she is busy doing house chores. We're living in the 21st century man, you can also help you wife a bit. Don't you want to follow the example of Imam Ali (as) who would help his wife with the house chores?

hey Ali, I know it is quite common in Australia for husbands and wives to share home chores but it is very unusual and against the norms in sub-continent culture. Only wives are responsible for all major home chores cooking, washing, ironing, cleaning etc. By the way, I have Aussy citizenship as well :-)

I also said that we don't allow maids to cook for fmaily.

Then make peace with the fact that you can't have everything:dry: A wife can't make 'rotis' for you and your family and then take care of other needs too.

Fair enough man. So you shouldn't blame her for being chubby. I mean, I would even find it hard to build a good body and cook for myself.

Otherwise you can go back to Australia and start taking her to the gym :)

No its not against or unusual... If you are that much concern about her then you can, you should help her unless its only an other excuse for you to neglect her!!

@molaayi_from_lahore i am sorry for all the harsh words...

But seriously brother you need to work out for your own emotions...

If above are all the excuses you are making to justify your "no more feelings" for her then don't make them.. Don't involve her brother!! Its you and only you and you know that well...

If you don't love her anymore then go straight through it, you want to have loving wife then go you have full permission from Allah.. But don't disrespect her even if your heart don't misses a beat by seeing her!! Respect her for the sake of those years which you guys spend together,protect her infront of people.. Tell her that you want another wife she won't stop you if she respects your feeling don't break her completely by hiding your second marriage..she is the mother of your children, don't make it difficult for your childeren...

To the OP: Whatever is your final decision, try to respect your wife and if you decided to get a second wife, don't forget your first wife. Spend your time half half between your wives. Never forget her. Spend your money %100 fair for both, and always be afraid of Zolm. Mazloum dua is VERY close to be accepted by Allah. Please also remember that all women lose their form after marriage and child birth, so find a bigger reason for getting married.

But he doesn't love his first wife, truly. A person who is grateful and in love with his spouse would never leave or go after other woman just for the sake of some extra pounds. Leaving your wife and going after attractive woman is not love, but lust. 

A man who thinks like the OP will never be satisfied with his first, second, third wife because he will find some excuse to check out on them. If he's finding an excuse now, he will find more if he gets a second wife. He will never treat them justly because he seems to blame and resent his wife for not meeting his shallow standards.

@AfricanShia Marrying an ahle kitab isn't allowed even after wife's permission and permission isn't needed when marrying a Muslim women. So, asking permission from wife is moot point at least for Sistani followers! :)

Marrying ahle kitab (Christian or Jewish) is haram whether it is permanent or Muta?

Yes,if he already has a Muslim wife he cannot take an ahle kitab woman in either a permanent or temporary marriage.

Based on obligatory precaution one cannot take a non Muslim woman even as a first wife.

(Sistani Rulings)

Sorry, but I have no idea. Agha Sistani is my marja so I only know his rulings. 

You can check the khamenei rulings from here:  khamenei.ir

The OP is not a troll and a toll image was removed. The OP has an older topic 'What Are My Options For A 2nd Wife' that was locked two years ago. So he has unresolved issues that he wants to discuss. No images allowed in this serious topic.

1. Someone who wants to mentally and emotionally check out (and probably already has) of a relationship by getting a second wife solely for the reason of she getting chubby is shallow and doesn't even deserve his wife or any woman for that matter. Unless, of course, he stops his arrogant and ungrateful mindset and changes his way. There are some people out there, like me, who want to get married but can't yet due to struggles such as distance. You have a wife, OP. There are people struggling to get married right now. There are people who don't have anyone to turn to for any sort of comfort and are not taken care of. Instead of thinking of yourself, think of your wife, and how you can show your appreciation and love towards all she does for you.

2. Get out of the mentality that a woman must do all the housework. That sort of thinking is from culture, not from Islam, and you must learn to discard cultural values that would do more harm than good.

3. Since this has been going on for a couple of years, it's not "mutah" that the OP wants, but rather, he's stuck in a loveless marriage to a woman he never really loved, but lusted after and wants out, so he must be willing to do couples therapy and if all else fails, cut the cord loose. Your wife deserves someone who treats her well and learns to love her, not treat her miserably. Therapy, both individual and couples therapy, will allow both you to look deeper within yourselves and perhaps any family dynamics that shaped your perception of each other, and most importantly, couple's therapy can bring you two closer together. 

Try couple's therapy before doing mutah for the wrong (and shallow) reasons.

Or divorce, but the OP is adamant about not divorcing.

That's what I was thinking too, and mentioned. But since he doesn't want to divorce, he must do couple's therapy. Mutah won't fix his problem - he needs to change his mindset.

But he probably doesn't see the point of therapy, and if that is the case, he should talk to his wife and apologize for ignoring her issues, lusting after that Christian woman last time and not appreciating her for sharing her life with him.

May you advise what is couple's therapy? 

Quote

Couple therapy is a means of resolving problems and conflicts that couples have not been able to handle effectively on their own. It involves both partners sitting down with a trained professional to discuss their thoughts and feelings. The aim is to help them gain a better understanding of themselves and their partner, to decide if they need and want to make changes, and if so, to help them to do so.

Even if it is from culture, is it bad? is it against any Islamic or Quranic principle. A man should share each and every home chore with his wife - this mentality is from your culture (i am assuming that you are a Westerner), why don't you get out of this mentality.
