Is divorce justified based on these grounds?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
In the first night I come to know that my wife had physical relation with anyone and she is not seemed ashamed for that.she was somewhat mentally abnormal also she lacks the qualities to be a faithful and good wife.Beside this I was not physically satisfied with her, but she was satisfied with me. Are these grounds are well enough to give her divorce?


(Fatwa: 159/159/L)

According to Shariah giving talaq (divorce) is not wajib (necessary) until the couples are in such a conflict in which they are unable to render their duties and obligations. Thus, the reasons mentioned above do not suffice for giving divorce:

لایجب علی الزوج تطلیق الفاجرۃ ولا علیھا تسریح الفاجر الا اذا خافا ان لا یقیما حدود اللہ فلا باس ان یتفرقا (الدر المختار مع الشامی: 4/144)
