Salaams Imam Asi,
My wife and i were recently discussing divorce. She said a friend of hers was recently divorced after her husband out of anger said the word talaq 3 times and the local ulema pronounced them divorced and could only take his wife back once she remarried, consumated and got divorced again.
I became irate because i believe that local priests are not deliberating enough over this divorce issue, i believe there should be a cooling off period, and in my anger i blurted out "Talaq, Talq,Talaq" to which my wife took so personal and got very emotional. She is now scared that our marriage is in doubt. I must say that i was just annoyed with the mentality of some local priests that i blurted out just to annoy her. I would really appreciate your comment. I come from Durban,South Africa where i think we have a very conservative ulema.
