Question

Is ejaculation praecox (early ejaculation) a reason for the wife to brake the marriage?
I know that impotence is a reason for that, but if someone comes afte 10 or 20 seconds, how it is in this case.

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

Praise be to Allaah.

We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, who replied that if this is upsetting the wife and causing her to miss out on her own pleasure, then there is nothing wrong with her asking for a divorce, but if she has children she should not be too hasty. And Allaah knows best.
