Can a married woman visit her parents without the permission of her husband?

The Details of the Question
Can a married woman visit her parents without the permission of her husband?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

We should primarily state that the issue in the question has two dimensions: the first one is the right of a married woman to visit her parents or her parents to visit her. The second one is the maintenance of the family bliss of the couple and the maintenance of the peace and happiness in their marriage.

As regards to the first dimension of the issue, it is an indisputable right of a married woman to visit her parents or to be visited by her parents. However, the timing for such visits is left to be determined with mutual agreement according to customs and traditions or positions of the couple. The frequency of visits of parents by a married woman who lives in a village consisting of 100 houses is not the same as for example that of a woman who lives in a city or who lives abroad.
