Divorce instruction according to Quran, Surah 65:1-6.

AnswerIn Islam, there is something called Al-Esma which is the right to divorce. Only one spouse could have this and its usually the husband unless she asks for it when they marry. whoever has Al-Esma can divorce by saying the word, I divorce you. Saying it a million times at the same time all counts as one "divorce" attempt. After that, a certain amount of time have to pass (months) before signing the legal papers and go different ways. This time is giving to reconsider. If they decided to go through with the divorce then it becomes final. they can't marry each other again after until she marries another man and devorces again. If they decide not to go through with the devorce, they can choose to stay married. But they only have two chances to take each other back and resume the marrage. If it happens twice, the third time is final whether they like it or not.

After they devorce, The husband pays allomony for the wife only if she's pregnant or they have kids (if she wanted his money I guess she should've stayed married to the guy lol). Also, the assets are not divided between them, whatever you bring in to the marrage you take with you and what you earn during is yours. I guess this system is best to keep the spouses rights during the marriage and also give the marriage every chance to succeed and think long and hard before getting a devorce.

In Islam (Sharia Law) it is forbidden. Men hold all of the power and once married, the woman is married for life.

No. Until your divorce is finalized by the court, you are still married. Getting married to a different person during your divorce proceedings would be bigamy.

Sure. A Muslim has to follow the Islamic teachings in all aspects of life including marriage.

Muslim Law varies from country to country. You have not mentioned the country to which the Muslim law has reference to.

If you live in a state that recognizes your common law marriage then if you decide to end it you must obtain a divorce.

User Avatar

It depends on the state you live in and whether the common law marriage was recognized under state law. If it was then he needs to get a divorce from his first wife and you are not legally married.

User Avatar

Yes, if you meet the requirements for being common law married, which are extensive.

in a civilized world, a married person, whether man or woman cannot marry another person without getting divorced from their present spouse, no matter what religion they are. If they do marry without divorce it is called 'bigamy" and against the law.

According to Christianity, once you're married, you're married for life. Christianity doesn't recognize or condone divorce, so if you marry, divorce, and remarry, according to Christianity it is adultery. However, the law is more reasonable than Christianity and does recognize divorce (not in all countries though). So the law will recognize that you are separated and your official status for tax and other purposes will legally be "Single", but the Catholic religion says you're still married.

There is no such thing as a common law divorce. However, you are not common law married until and unless you get a decree of common law marriage from a judge. The link below is a full discussion of South Carolina Common Law Marriage.

This question is contradictory. By definition, US law is not the same as Islamic law. To have your marriage recognised in the US, you must be able to be declared as married according to US law. Similarly, your divorce must be recognised under US law, whose requirements are separate to those of Islamic law.Divorce law obviously varies from state to state, but at a minimum you will have to contact your local registry office and ask them for a certificate of divorce. You will be able to submit evidence of your divorce under Islamic law as part of that request, but you will still most likely have to fill out a form.

Nothing happens if you marry and divorce him in England that is the law. You will have papers to prove your divorce and Turkey will accept that.

You are free to date whether you are married or not but keep in mind that you are married until your divorce decree is final. There is no law that addresses dating during a divorce but it may be used against you in some way during the divorce proceeding.

Yes. Marriage is a legal status. You are married until you are granted a divorce by a court of law.
