Wife asking husband’s permission to fast when he has another wife

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is it obligatory for a wife to ask her husband’s permission to fast if that is on the other wife’s day?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

If the husband is present with her then she should not fast without his permission, because he may need her. But if he is with his other wife and it is the other wife’s day, then it seems that it is o.k. for her to fast with or without his permission. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
