In Islam husband should provide his family with every need. Women are authorized to work and don't have to give money to the husband. It's up to her if she wanted to. Your husband is wrong. For the second and third wife, Quran mentioned it clearly. It is authorized by with tough conditions. Unfortunately some wrong hadith have been put above Quran and now muslim men are marrying as they wish in total religious anarchy. Some hadith even saying that muslim men can have as many as they want women slaves. When in Quran this is pure Zina. Anyway I wish you good luck.
