To give a gift before khums year

Q: Is it permissible for a person to give money to his wife as a gift before the end of his khums year while knowing that his wife will save the money in order to buy a house in the future or to buy them some necessities of life?

A: He is allowed to do so, and he is not required to pay khums on the gift he gives to his wife provided that the amount is normally proportionate to his social status and that of people like him, he has really given it to her as a gift and not for the purpose of evading of khums.
