Yes muslims can be divorce in less than 3 years and its not compulsary to stay for 3 years. No marriage was a mistake, yours was just a MISS to TAKE..d rite ones..kekeke :cool:

well dear if you are the woman in the marriage.. it's not so easy..

He will have to let you go first with the "talak"...in which if he does not do this you will have to go to court to file for a divorce.

It is simpler if he lets you go instead of having to go to court. Court takes alot of time...and in muslim marriages you'll have to go to the syariah court and they will try to talk u out of it..but off course if you insist there's nothing they can do but again the husband has got to let you go..

Where is it that the man just has to say "I divorce you" three times & they are divorced?

I remember reading about a debate whether this could be done by text message a while ago, it was decided against.

The man just have to say it once to the wife and it's over.

If the man divorces the wife on the 3rd "Talak" that mean the man cannot reunite with his ex until she is married to someelse and leave that someone..

Strange Islamic laws about marriage but it's true..

so u mean. if the woman wants to divorce, she will have to go to the court to file. In the other way, if then man wants to divorce. He can just say it and do ntt else?

There's a novel approach. You're a Chinese, does that mean you cannot be a muslim? If he is a muslim, is he Chinese, or Indian or Malay, or American, or African?

I think he has definately made a mistake.

The SMS thing caused an uproar back then in Malaysia. High-tech, indeed :o
