One issue that a wife must take into consideration is that she may beleaving a wealthy household that is luxurious in favor of her husband’s home, and her husband might be poor, or a student, or an employee who is barely making ends meet. In that case, a wife should take the difference [in lifestyles] into consideration, since this is the predestination of Allah,as Allah said (what means):

«It is We Who portion out between them their livelihood in this world, and We raised some of them above others in ranks, so that some may employ others in their work.»

[Quran: 43:32]

So the fact that the woman was spoiled and her father bought her some thing new everyday, does not mean that she should exhaust her husband by going overboard [in asking for new things] when she moves into her husband’s house.

Asking for more spending money, and asking for too much [material things] is something very embarrassing for a husband, especially if he is poor. Furthermore, it might push a husband who has weak faith to resort to unlawful means of acquiring money, thereby, harming himself and his family by pursuing unlawful earnings, such as those earned through bribery or theft. In this case, the husband would put himself in a position wherein he is likely to be fired from his job, or imprisoned, and the result would be that he loses his religion and his livelihood.

In contrast, a husband should understand that his wife was in a wealthy house, and should strive to bring whatever things he is able to bring her, which falls within the confines of being religiously permissible.
