KOTA KINABALU: The Islamic Development Department (Jakim) will submit a proposal to the Syariah Court to compel husbands to discuss first with their spouse their intention to take another wife. 

Only when the first wife has given her say and the Syariah Court has heard the opinions of both sides will the husband’s decision be considered, said Jakim director-general Datuk Mohd Shahrir Abdullah.
