"she would be guaranteed a decent alimony and that’s what she should have done in this case."

Decent alimony? Islamic law allows only 90 days of sustenance money to the divorced wife. Is it decent money?

Its a misconception that permission is required from the first wife but the wife has every right to divorce her Husband and she would be guaranteed a decent alimony and that's what she should have done in this case.
