Can a wife insist that her husband wears a condom? 8 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 0
In the case of the man with more than one wife, can any of the wives insist that he wears a condom to prevent STI’s and other infections?

Every husband and wife has a right to conjugal rights between them. A husband is permitted to marry no more than four wives at any given point in time. However, if a wife fears that her husband might bring sexually transmitted diseases and other infections to her bed, then she has to institute procedures to either have the marriage annulled or insist that all the parties undergo medical examinations to satisfy herself that she will not be harmed.

However, we must take heed of the following narrations of our Prophet (pbuh). “Among the most evil of people before Allah on the Day of Resurrection will be a man who comes to his wife and has intercourse with her, then he spreads her secrets.” (Muslim)

It was reported from Asma' bint Yazid that she was with the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and men and women were sitting with him, and the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Would any man say what he did with his wife? Would any woman tell others what she did with her husband?” The people remained silent and did not answer. I [Asma’] said: “Yes, by Allah, O Messenger of Allah! They (women) do that, and they (men) do that.” He said: “Do not do that. It is like a male devil meeting a female devil in the road and having intercourse with her whilst the people are watching.” (Abu Dawud).

The fear of the husband bringing std's and other infections to her bed, is no reason for a wife to apply for faskh of her marriage. She should raise her fears with her husband. If he assures her that there is nothing wrong, she should accept it, lest she indirectly accuses his other wives of wrongdoing. If she can substantiate her fears, it should be sufficient for the husband to be medically tested. If he tests positive, he should take all necessary precautions to protect the wife against infection, including ascertaining which of the other wives may have infected him. If the wife suspects the husband of having extra marital affairs from whence he might pick up infection, she should raise her suspicions with him. But suspicion alone is no cause for drastic action. And faskh is never the first option.
