Why is it necessary to sign a contract to allow the wife to work in the first place? It's a marriage, not a prison sentence. Just another example of the archaic way of life that some people practice.
To get married we sign a contract, and it is in that contract where each party decide if additional clauses are added or not. So it isn't a pre-marrital contract or something like that.
Adding a clause such as the husband not interfering in the wife's job could help if there is any disagreement in the future regarding this and the wife wants the divorce. The woman can easily get the divorce because the husband did not comply with the clause.
