Asking for divorce due to jealousy (polygyny)

Can a woman who is experiencing extreme jealousy due to polygyny ask for a divorce. The sister is also 8 months pregnant and is affecting her mood and appetite. Please help! May Allah bless you.

Umm Abdel-Malik:

This is not a valid reason to get divorce, rather she has to be patient and to seek Allah’s help and to busy herself in seeking beneficial knowledge, so she should read kitaabut-Tawheed and seerah, and she has in the biography of the female Companions of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, a good example or model (to follow.)
