wife rarely share bed due to body odour


Salam We have been married for 11 years. I have bad smell issue. My wife rarely share bed with me. We both sleep on different beds. What Islam says in such an issue?

Wa-Alaykum As Salaam
There are two obligations.
1) Your obligation to your wife (fixing the issue of the smell – finding the cause, eliminating it, using perfume, if it is body odor use of noura and henna on the body, if it is a gut issue fixing the food that is eating and cleansing the guts etc).
2) Your wifes obligation to you in that she needs to be meeting your needs as her husband.
