Thank you for your question.

My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you

Since Polygamy is legal in Pakistan your husband can go there and marry some one else.

However he cannot bring her here as his wife - and if she is also from the UK then the marriage would not be recognised at all

Please ask if you need further details

If he attempts to ho through a legally valid marriage here in the Uk then that would be bigamy

If he goes through a Nikah then it is not
