Wife Had An Illegal Relation

Q:

Some days before my wife told me that she had a sex with her boyfriend before marrying with me. Now what should I do.

A:

Salaam Alaykum,

It takes a lot of courage and strength for a woman to tell  her husband about her past relation and the things that followed.  
if she has repented on it and regrets it then it’s only fair to give her a chance, besides it looks like she was only trying to take away the guilt that was inside her. She wasn’t obliged to tell you according to the Islamic law. 
 
If there is more to this story, then kindly speak to your local Aalim and I’m sure he will be able to guide you further.
