Secret marriage

Q: I would like to know if I could talk to a non mahram for the purpose of a secret marriage as my first wife will not agree to my 2nd marriage and is asking for a divorce if I marry a 2nd wife so hence i am considering a 2nd marriage.

A: These types of secret marriages come with a lot of complications. Hence we do not at all encourage secret marriages.

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