The first words that came out from me was, "Allah will help me." He laughed, then got angry and said I was naive to believe life works just like that. I will prove him wrong. I will trust in Allah to help me and I WILL rise again and go on with my life as best as I could, and I won't go home. This is a challenge I have to take.
  

I just wanted to point this out.. he laughed / mocked for one's belief /faith in Allah... WOW.. shows just how ignorant even  Muslims are. And does he have no fear! Wow..

 Yeah, some muslims are really ignorant. My skanky ex husband said to me he didn't care if I was muslim or not, lol.  that is a real insult to a revert...it was like a smack in the face. ANd proves it wasn't a muslim wife he wanted at all...well not here at least, hehe. He had no fear of anything other than losing his legal status. Phew...I am SO well out of it. Thank goodness I can laugh about it now.  BUt it has left me  SO doubting men, lol. SOmeone please tell me I shall recover from this current feeling.Smile

Your husband is unable to financially support two wives, and it is not legal to have two wives, so hold your ground and don't accept it.  Let him divorce you or seek a khula' based upon support if he goes through with this marriage.  Enlist the help of responsible individuals in the community to assist you, and to stop him from wooing the other woman.  It is likely an infatuation and he is not thinking carefully.  Now is the time to protest loud and clear.  Don't give in to nonsense about "helping" the sister.  There are plenty of single men to "help" her.  Encourage the community to help her with whatever financial and emotional needs she may have until a suitable person is found for her to marry.  Be strong for your kids.  Try to control your emotions as to not appear wounded.  I often wish we had Omar (ra) around these days with his whip for these irresponsible men.

He is considering marrying her but feels that he is not out of line because it is a "lesser form of right" because he is intending to do something good in Islam.
I don't know what to do. We have children and he really can not afford to take on this responsibility but he is pretty much insisting that I accept her or our marriage will end.
 
Salaams Sister SIncere,
Sorry, I did not see this before.
I am sorry you are going through this.
If your husband really wanted to do something good in Islam then he most definately would not be spending time with her as he is right now. This is just an excuse from him. He is not following correctly.He shouldnot be spending time and money on her like this. As Brother Abuayisha has said your husband is probably infatuated with her and she is possibly using him also. Also your husband cannot afford to have 2 wives so it would not be appropriate to do so. It sounds to me as if they meet in secret also. So how can that be right?
Be patient with your husband but decide if you want to share him. As explained, you don't have to. And I am not sure your husband wants to lose you and the children which is a possibility.
Is it possible that you and your husband and children can go away for a break for a few days...to family maybe? Then perhaps he will be able to think more clearly. And try to talk to him more about this.
I do hope you and he can resolve this quickly.

Salaams,

Good advice to Sisteer Sincere.. I know a Brother who wanted two wives. But I tell you, he did everything exactly right. So it can be done as it should be.
When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy. Rumi

Lot of Arabs here in Canada are womanizers. I think its integrated into their culture to oppress woman and make her vulnerable.

Before Islam came they used to bury girls alive.


 Asslamu Alaikum brother, this is not an Islamic way to discuss an issue. Men of all nations like the girls and follow them. I will not provide examples just want you not to be narrow in thinking. Yeh Arabs used to bury them alive but look at the woman today in many nations. She is also buried alive in countries which are not of Arabs. This takes pages to discuss.

  Let me ask you brother, does this fact  answers or  helps the sister?
 Even reminding  brother fais of his wife is another wrong way to win the argument. I am sorry to say that. We win by telling others the truth not by going around in circles.

 My brother I believe  we all ,me ,you and all of them, need to follow the hadith:
 
  "Whosoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should say good or remain silent."

 I advise myself before you. We all are human beings.
 May Allah be pleased.
 Salam

The traditional way to handle the problem is to brush it under the rug so that the "integrity" of brother remains intact while sister goes through hell.

Muslim men usually who are from 3rd world country( ie Arab,Pakistan,India) with no legal status here, try to marry Canadian woman here so they can get citizenship.

These men are very backward in thinking and are control freaks. They are also insecure because Canadian woman are educated, professional and know the language.

This is why they impose ridiculous restrictions on them in name of "Islam". Reverts got no one to ask for advice and are held in dark, while these so called husbands pick "virgin" brides back home for their next wedding.

Moment they get what they want, they ditch them and leave.

I am posting this so reverts, esp woman reverts would know that just because someone is muslim, doesn't means that he is a saint.
