Marriage with the intention to divorce


Marriage with the intention to divorce

Shaykh Saalih ibn Fowzaan al-Fowzaan

What is the ruling regarding marriage with the intention to divorce, bearing in mind there is no such agreement between the man and the woman, and the woman is unaware of this (i.e. that she is entering a marriage where the man intends – from the outset – to divorce her)?

This is deception on the part of the husband. She did not marry him upon this (intention), (rather), she married him on the basis that this will be a lasting marriage. So if he conceals this intention, then he has deceived her. Deception is not permissible, (and) marriage with the intention to divorce is not permissible for that which entails therein (much) evil and corruption. Now, those who travel to the Far East and get married every night, they marry and divorce, marry and divorce – much evil and corruption has ensued from that, so this is not permissible.
