13243: Some causes of divorce


What are the causes of divorce in your opinion?

Praise be to Allaah.  

There are many causes of divorce, such as lack of harmony between the spouses, such that one of them does not love the other, or neither of them loves the other; or a bad attitude on the wife’s part, or her failure to listen to and obey her husband with regard to things that are good and proper; or a bad attitude on the part of the husband and his mistreating her and being unfair to her; or inability on the part of either spouse to fulfil the rights of the other; or sin on the part of one or both of them, which may generate a bad atmosphere between them and eventually lead to divorce, such as use of intoxicants and tobacco on the part of either spouse; or a bad atmosphere between the wife and one or both parents of the husband; or a lack of wisdom in dealing with one another; or the wife’s failure to keep herself clean and make herself attractive to her husband by wearing nice clothes, smelling good, speaking nice words and greeting him with a smiling face when they meet.
