Why does wife have to pay husband to get a divorce from him? What of the usage (mileage) that husband has used on wife? Does she still have the same market value that she had before marrying him? Wife, husband having no respect for your parents and relatives is not enough grounds for divorce. I just love Islam – interesting.
