Assalualikum lately me and my wife have been going through a bad patch were we are not happy with each other now in a heated conversation I repeatedly said to her 5 times we might as well get divorced and I meant it does that mean we are divorced



In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

The aforementioned statement will not affect the marriage. The aforementioned statement will be treated like a threat of divorce and a threat or warning does not effect talaq even though you had the intention. (Badaaius Sanaai p.210 v.2)
