Second Marriage Without Divorce Under Muslim Laws
My wife and I separated one year ago and don't have kids and filed a case in family court with no response from her. Can I do a second marriage without divorce under Muslim Laws?

In Islam, monogamy is the general rule while polygamy is only an exception. The Prophet did not favour polygamy except in exceptional circumstances. According to the Muslim Marriage Law, a man can have up to 4 wives, but a woman can only have one husband at a time. Muslims can legally have more than 1 wife provided that each such marriage is done according to Sharia, which is also known as Muslim Personal Law.
