1. If the spouses feel that they cannot continue with the nikaah and will not be able to fulfil their marital obligations and responsibilities they owe to each other, then it will be permissible for them to separate through divorce.

2. If he did not intend talaaq, talaaq will not take place.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
