Question
Respected Sir, Salam Alaikum

I am abroad with my family "wife & 3 kids" my mother back home alone, i found a girl about half of my age, i have informed her about my status, nothing hidden and she agreed to marry me and become second wife, she also agreed to stay with my mother. I have introduced her to my mother and she also liked her, now they talk with each other over phone and they both are happy & satisfied. I am going to marry her in near future.

Dear Brother,

May Allah bless your married life. However you are allowed to have more than one wives if you are able to do justice between them. Therefore please re-calculate as justice is a very big commitment.

[Quran 4:3] If you fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one, or (a captive) that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice.

AbuDawud Book 005, Hadith Number 2128.
------------------------------
Narated By AbuHurayrah : The Prophet (pbuh) said: When a man has two wives and he is inclined to one of them, he will come on the Day of resurrection with a side hanging down.
