The wife gives up the right to housing and the husband gives up the right to home keeping. Critics say that it is a marriage contract is just based on a purely sexual relationship that favors the husband.
Wife charged him for Adultery
The wife filed a case against the man and charged him for adultery. The husband was able to prove that the woman with whom he was sleeping was married to him under a Misyar contract.
He also claimed that their marriage was kept a secret because of the woman’s ex-husband. He would demand the custody of her children if he will come to know about her marriage.
