Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If a woman leaves the marital home without any sharee reason and goes and finds her own place to live. The husband has not given talaak and feels he wants things to work however the wife is adamant she does not want the marriage. There is also a minor son involved. Is it the husbands responsibility to pay for her rent etc for she moved out of the marital home on her own accord and without any shared reason?


A: The husband is not responsible.

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