Does this statement constitute a divorce?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

I have currently moved to a new city and am staying alone without my family temporarily.

If I tell someone that I am a bachelor now, with the intention that I am living the life of a bachelor, will this be considered as a divorce.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The statement in reference does not constitute a divorce[1].

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
