My wife wants me to marry her sister. I've explained to her that Islam does not allow two sisters in marriage with the same guy at the same time.

She says that she can take Khula from me, so that I can marry with her sister.

She also says that she and her sister want me to be their husband turn by turn every two years. Is it possible in Islam ?

  • That is very close to being a Mutaa marriage. Can you elaborate if you are looking for a Sunni or Shia perspective?

  • Also what happens if you were to have kids? Would you still divorce the mother of your children?

    It is not possible to repeatedly divorce and remarry the same person.You will not be able to remarry her after the third time. الطلاق مرتان فإمساك بمعروف أو تسريح بإحسان

  • @UmH After the third marriage, isn't the concept of 'Halala' applicable? (No disrespect to Arif or his wife but a generic question)

  • @Ahmed halala is a concept that is not in accordance to the rules of shari'a. Which also applies to the suggestion of Arifs wife assuming it is her idea.

In islam marriage is not meant to be temporary but lasting and you cannot intend to marry someone for a specific time as it would not be a valid nikah. Allah knows best and if my answer is wrong it is my fault so please forgive me for that.
