It is always highly recommended for every Muslim to recite Quran but when a person is in the state of Janabah or a female is in her menses, it becomes Haraam on them to recite the four verses of the obligatory Sajda. Rest of Quranic verses are always allowed and recommended to recite.
The narration of Makrouh for woman in her menses to recite more than seven verses in case it is authentic, does not mean no reward but less reward from the usual situation of purity.

Wassalam.

Witness is usually taken when there is a dispute between parties and conflict of interests. Witness is a heavy burden which can be difficult on one woman alone. Another woman supporting the first one will make the witness fully accepted.

In fact, it is out of respect for the woman not to leave her face the challenge of the witness alone.

If your husband pursues extra-marital affairs, either in the halal way (mut'ah or seeking a second wife), then you have the choice of either staying with him, or getting divorced from him. 

Of course, such issues must be directly addressed, and his and your family be involved as well. 

Your husband might be going through a phase, and needs a wakeup call for him to return back and focus on his marriage. If so, forgive him, and try to strengthen the relationship.

However, if after intervention he still pursues the new relationship, then you decide what you wish to do. To divorce him, or continue to live with him. Just know that you are not obliged to live under such circumstances. 

Also, this short clip could be of benefit as well:

1. Abortion is forbidden. A child is a human with a right to life regardless of how it is conceived. However, some scholars allow abortion in this situation if keeping the child is psychologically or personally traumatic. It is certainly not a requirement to abort the child.

2. "No man may marry her after that" - who said that? Yes, some people have some backwards ideas about virginity or purity or marrying a woman with kids, but these ideas are from people, not Islam. If the woman wishes to marry, inshallah she will find the right husband. Maybe she would not want to be married to someone who thinks in a wrong way. 

Allah is merciful and just. It would not be merciful or just for Allah to punish the victim in this situation by forcing more consequences on her after the first trauma.

If she has fulfilled her duty in Hijab, she will not then responsible but the man who looks at her with lust will be responsible of his evil thoughts. Men must avoid looking with lust to females especially who have done their full Hijab.
