Carla Will Be The 2nd Wife; What’s The Next Step?


Wa alaikum as-salam. I distinctly remember there is a law that a Saudi has to get permission from the first wife in order to marry again. Your Saudi might want to inquire about that as the next step.

Name: Carla

What was the marriage permission process like for you from beginning to end? Assalam alaikum! I would like to ask about the procedure of getting married to a Saudi guy. I will be the second wife. My hospital already released my NOC and I have shahada certificate already. Then we are planning to send those papers to the Chamber of Commerce. We don’t know what is the next step after.
