Firstly we need to know what English word Divorce means and whether or not it is equivalent to Arabic word: AtTalaq,

divorce
/dɪˈvɔːs/Submit
noun
1.
the legal dissolution of a marriage by a court or other competent body.
"her divorce from her first husband"
synonyms:   dissolution, annulment, official separation, judicial separation, separation, disunion, break-up, split, split-up, severance, rupture, breach, parting; More
verb
1.
legally dissolve one's marriage with (someone).
"she divorced him in 1965"
synonyms:   split up (with), end one's marriage (to), get a divorce (from), separate (from), part (from), split (from), break up (with), part company (with), dissolve one's marriage (to), annul one's marriage (to); More
2.
separate or dissociate (something) from something else, typically with an undesirable effect.
"religion cannot be divorced from morality"
synonyms: separate, disconnect, divide, disunite, sever, disjoin, split, dissociate, detach, isolate, alienate, set apart, keep apart, cut off;

Arabic word signifies the meanings mentioned at 2; not formal or legal dissolution of marriage.

I remember I had a similar situation. My parents were divorced. When I was little, everything was fine. We were a great family. Then someone cheated on someone. I do not know the exact details because I was still a small child. It's a good thing that my aunt was a lawyer at a firm, and she helped us a lot. I thought my parents would almost kill each other. They quarreled a lot about money, the house, my father's business. After all, my father did not want to give even a tiny part of his business to my mother, but everything was resolved, and we now see him often. However, my father does not communicate with my mother at all directly...

good logic

A divorce court judge said to me, “I have reviewed your case very carefully, and I’ve decided to give your wife $1800 a week.”
“That’s very fair, your honor,” I replied. “And every now and then, I’ll try to send her a few bucks myself.”

Me I want to know if I have grounds for divorce.
My lawyer: Are you married?
Me Yes, of course.I have 4 wives
My lawyer: Then you will have no grounds or properties or anything left. Everything will be shared amongst them.

What did I  say to my alien wife after separating ?
May divorce be with you.

Why is my relationship similar to algebra?
Because sometimes I look at  my X and wonder Y.

When people who don't yet know I'm divorced ask, "where is your other half", I reply, "she got it in the divorce settlement".

Anyway, it is my wife s fault We got a divorce.
She told me I should be more affectionate. So I got two girlfriends.

Actually it is  my fault we got a divorce.
My wife told me:" A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
I replied:"A successful woman is one who can find such a man."
That is why neither of us was successful in our marriage.

My wife always  had the last word in any argument. Anything I said to her after that was the beginning of a new argument.

Make love, not war. --Hell, do both, get married and never divorce!
GOD bless you all.
Peace.

Brother.
Hope everything is fine where you are?
Life itself has changed with the so called virus. I wonder if there is less divorce cases under lockdown?
Here in England,we have a new"normal". Lockdown was lifted except  in some areas  which are still under "regional lockdown" because of new variants.
If the regional areas keep growing we will soon be under another lockdown. Or may be this is the third time lucky?
However the masks and distancing remain!.

I am always optimistic and  my only fear is separation from my Lord. I do not trust my satan. That is the evil that, try as I may, I have failed to divorce  the devil!!
I  will keep trying brother.

GOD bless you and your family.
Peace..
