Rights Of Wives

Question

We know that if a woman refuses her husband to bed, the angels curse her till dawn. What if the husband refuses his wife? Does she have rights over her husband?


Answer

A couple is obliged to take care of the psychological and sexual needs of the partner. If a wife becomes unreasonable and stubbornly refuses to fulfill the needs of her husband then she is guilty of violating the rights of her husband. The Prophet (sws) categorically stated in some other occasions that both husband and wife have rights over each other. It means that both are required to take care of the sexual needs of the partner. It is not only the wife who is to cooperate and the husband is not given free hand to treat her as he likes.
