Question

3/4 years ago I had a misunderstanding with my husband, and in anger, I was continuously asking him to give me a divorce. He was completely quiet the whole time and didn’t say a word but when he got frustrated he said ok go Urdu (jao yahan sai) yesterday I was reading behashti zewar and there I read about talaq kinayah. then I asked my husband that weather had you ever said to me go to your house with an intention of divorce and he said no never I just wanted to ask that in the above-mentioned matter do u think any talaq has happened?

Answer

If a woman asks her husband to give her divorce and the husband replies “okay go”, talaq will not come into effect.
