How I divorced my wife in Islam

And if he has divorced her [for the third time], then she is not lawful to him afterward until [after] she marries a husband other than him. And if the latter husband divorces her [or dies], there is no blame upon the woman and her former husband for returning to each other if they think that they can keep [within] the limits of Allah . These are the limits of Allah , which He makes clear to a people who know. (Quran 2:230)

Islam is the only religion where you can end up in a situation wondering if you are committing adultery with your own wife

But you’re just a bad Muslim!

I wondered over and over again would it be better to leave her, despite having kids together, and despite we still loved each other and wanted to work it out

Why we stayed together

The thought of breaking up and destroying our entire life together over a few words uttered in a moment of haste was far too heavy a cost for me to swallow

A better way
