Husband making azal without the wife's consent

Q: I've been married for 2 years and my husband practises azl. I am not very young and would like a family but he is preventing it. He also always says he wants a second wife before we have children. This upsets me because I am his wife now and it feels unfair to me to be subjected to this. Is this grounds for leaving him.

A: He does not have the right to make azl without your consent. He is cheating you of your right.

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