If husband and wife did not talk or have any sexual relationship for over 1 year does it affect the nikah?
In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.
In the aforementioned scenario divorce will not occur as long as the husband does not issue the divorce to his wife verbally or in writing.
It is mentioned in Durrul Mukhtar:
“The main part (rukn) of divorce is the specific statement.” (Raddul Muhtar p.426 v.4)
Only Allah Knows Best
