A woman accepted to be divorced but demanded that the husband supports her materially. The question is, if a husband divorces his wife, should he maintain her materially and how should the property be divided?


To begin with, the spouses should avoid divorce as much as possible. If they have difficulties and problems, they should try to work out their differences and seek help from their relatives, friends, or professional counselors. The wife has the right to be financially maintained for three months after divorce in addition to receiving her deferred dowry. For the division of property, jurists say that if both the husband and wife had shared in building or purchasing their property, it should be divided justly between them.
