If any woman is facing this kind of problem , Muslim or otherwise , she should be allowed to divorce her husband at once without any ifs or buts because I don't think any modern woman would like to live with a man who considers her second best.

Hmm.. You are spreading a half-true news.
Let me correct you dear..

New Delhi, Mar 17 (ANI): The All India Muslim Women Personal Law Board (AIMWPLB) has released the Shariat Nikahnama that they claim would give equal rights to both Muslim men and women.
If the board has its way, a Muslim woman would be entitled to seek divorce if her husband was found having illicit relationship with another woman.
The board has also rejected any divorce done through SMS, e-mail, phone as video conferencing, besides rejecting divorce done on provocation.
A Muslim woman can seek divorce if she is forced by her husband to indulge in unnatural sex. She can also seek divorce if her husband contracts AIDS.

The verdict is lauable, but the question still remains how the AIMWPLB takes it to their side when a muslim woman approaches it to santion her plea to be decided by the Civil Court. I do not think that the verdict is a helping one when the Board holds its authority vested in them by their Personal Law which ironically is the deciding factor so far a muslim is concerned.
