Q: Through out the years of our marriage, my husband and I have had numerous arguments and there also has been physical abuse. I tried so hard to have patience. Now I am pregnant and we’ve had another massive argument and he also hit me a couple of times. I’ve had enough and I want a divorce.
What is the ruling for a pregnant woman wanting a divorce?
A: Divorce issued while the wife is pregnant is valid and binding. If the divorce is issued while she is pregnant then her Iddat period will terminate when she gives birth. So she will remain in Iddat till birth.
