Husband preventing the wife from visiting her relatives

Q: If a husband made an unnecessary restriction on his wife to meet her relatives because of jealousy, is it permissible for the wife to agree to this decision. In other words, she does not want to stop meeting with her relatives (because this is not part of deen, just because of his jealousy)?

A: She has got the right to meet her relatives as long as it does not interrupt the relationship with her husband.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
