What is the ruling of a man who divorced his wife to marry a woman whom he has been having an affair with? The new wife asked him to divorce his first wife if he wants to marry her (new wife). How does islam view both husband and this new wife? What about other people including friends and family who knew about the affairs and divorce but nobody intervene because they think its none of their business? In fact they attended the wedding as if it was event of the century. The man did not even tell his ex wife and their teenage kids about the wedding and they found out from third party. Does the man need to tell in advance of his remarrying to his teenage kids who couldn't even handle the divorce?
