Q: Can a husband suck his wife's breasts?

A:
If the husband sucks the wife's breasts and drinks the breast-milk, the Nikah is not affected in any way. The wife does not become haraam upon the husband. However, even though the nikah remains intact, it is not permissible to drink the wife's breast-milk. Sucking the breast which does not issue milk is permissible.
