The amount of days given in a new marriage even if it is with his former wife


A man divorced his wife and they separated.

Then he married another woman, now he wishes to return to take the first woman back.

The question is:

Does he designate 3 nights to her before dividing the days equally between the two?

Or does he only remain with her the wedding night (before dividing the days)?


Yes he designates three days to her because it’s a new marriage, and she is a thayb (a woman who has experienced marriage).
