Q: In halaala, is intercourse a must to do or just nikaah and privacy without intercourse will do? My in-laws forced me for triple talaaq using their power and threats, otherwise me and my wife love each other dearly.
A: Consummating the nikah is necessary for halaala to be valid.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
