Question : #590 Category: Marriage - Muta'
Subject: Mutah with married woman
Question: I entered into temporary marriage with a Christian lady not knowing that she is separated from her husband and not officially divorced. She could not get divorce because in that country its very expensive court matter which she could not afford.
Is my marriage contract valid given that she is officially not divorced yet?
Answer: If she was considered married in her religion, then it is prohibited to marry her and she becomes permanently prohibited for you if the marriage is consummated.

If she was considered divorced in the Christian faith, then it is permissible to marry her.
