Asking about Divorce

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Few months back I was asking questions to my wife about divorce; I mean we had a discussion on divorce and in a question I said: “if I say to you that I divorce you, I divorce you, I divorce, then by saying like this does divorce take place in Islam”, she replied: “yes”. I said: “ok”. Then she said to me: “why did you use the divorce word three times?” I said: “I was just asking you a question not giving divorce in any way.” Is this a divorce or not? I was not angry at all and we are very happy with each other.

A: This was not a divorce.
