Every Makrouh is harmful but not Haraam. Allah knows the details of the harm which might be unknown to us.

We have Hadeeths from the Prophet (SAWA) stating that it is Makrouh. It is not only when trying to conceive a child but it is Makrouh in any sexual intercourse.

Wassalam.

The man who has more than one wife must maintain practical justice between his wives. He must organize  his time between them to be sure that each of them gets equal rights.

It is his responsibility to achieve that practical justice, not yours as a wife.

If the man is unable to maintain practical justice between more than one wife, he will be then not allowed to have more than one wife (But if you fear that you shall not deal justly with wives, then just one wife. ( Sura Al-Nisaa', verse 3)

The general understanding of this verse is that things are generally created in pairs (for instance, positive and negative, matter and antimatter, light and dark, or male and female), and that one of the signs of Allah is that human beings marry and form a pair in order to become more whole than they would be individually.

However, it is not usually taken to mean that all human beings are specifically created with a soulmate or "pair" whom they marry in this world. Indeed, some people have more than one happy marriage in their lifetimes; others are miserable in their marriages!

Marriage can be destined and can be a matter of free choice; matters of destiny are not usually clear. Some people misuse the idea of destiny and marriage to cover up socially unjust practices (for instance, not allowing their children to marry someone of a certain race, culture, family, or profession) and then saying these restrictions are "destiny". At the same time, it does seem that sometimes some people are destined to be together or destined not to be together. 

However if you are happy with your husband, I hope you will be able to be together in the Hereafter!

In principle, it is allowed for husband to hold his wife's hand in public if there is no bad effect from such act on others who see him and his wife, or on the respect of the man or his wife in the eyes of society.

It is not allowed for a Muslim to hit any one including his wife or children. Some people misunderstand a Quranic verse in this regard which in fact does not mean real hitting but not more than a nominal act to correct. If a person hit his wife and her skin becomes reddish, he must pay her a penalty, beside his sinful act which needs seeking her pardon and forgiveness from Allah (SWT).

Allah says in Quran ( And your Lord creates whatever He wills and chooses, no choice have they.) 28:68.

When the zygote is formed, it means that it was created by Allah, so, no one has the right to terminate the pregnancy. Your husband has no right to kill this embryo by abortion. You need to tell him that he  should not object on the Wisdom and Mercy of Allah which created this embryo. No one knows what is the future of this child but Allah who created it.

Abortion is type of killing of a human being and it is a major sin and has a penalty called  Diyah like the penalty of killing. The only case in which abortion can be allowed is when the life of the mother is in danger because f the pregnancy and there was no way to save the life of the mother but only by abortion.

This is a test for you as every human being has a test in his life or tests. We have in the statements of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) : The Jihad of the woman is tolerating the bad attitude of her husband. 
We can not make judgement before listening to both parties, but there are thousands of cases of bad attitude of husband towards his wife, or the wife towards her husband.

We need to be sure that husband and wife must avoid any act or word which instigates the other. Wife should do her best not to do or say anything which makes her husband unhappy with her. If she fulfills her responsibility in this matter, and still suffers from bad attitude of her husband or his parents or relatives, she will be then getting the degree of Jihad for her tolerance and patience.

Be careful not to fall in any unwanted acts or words as a reaction of bad acts from her husbands or his family.

Remember the great reward of pious ladies like Asiya who suffered a lot from bad husband Firaon.

Patience and seeking support and help from Allah (SWT) is the main gate of relief from such difficult situation.

Yes.

However, you should be certain that you are comfortable with this because you and your children will live with it. Not only does a musician have to practice (and sometimes record) at home, but children often inherit musical talent and interests. So it is something you should look into your heart and see if it is the right future for you (or whoever is thinking of getting married). 

Also,  if you don't respect or agree with your husband's work, it might cause conflict between you two.

the wallet of your husband is considered as his property, so it is not right to take money from it without is approval.

In the mentioned case, the best thing would be to reach an agreement between you and your husband where you can save and share your money in fair and satisfactory way for both. If it is not possible, starting two separated accounts could be another option.

Islamically, the wife's money belongs to her and she can use in halal way at her discretion; therefore the husband has no right to prevent her from them unless there is a previous agreement that allows him to do that.

With prayers for your success.
