Q: Please advise if talaaq takes place in the following incidents:
1. Telling my wife that we will get divorced.
2. Telling my brother in law and wife that I have decided (meaning that I have decided that I want to and will divorce my wife).
3. Telling my father in law that my wife and I both decided that it is best for us to get divorced.
4. Telling my mother that there’s no other option (meaning that there’s no other option for my wife and I other than getting divorced)
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
