  • @Daniel, I think OP wants to know if there is no relationship between husband and wife for x amount of years, does the marriage islamically become invalid automatically after a certain amount of time for being in a non relationship marriage? OP correct me if I am wrong.. Or is the marriage always islamically valid, no matter how long it's been without a relationship between husband and wife. Commented Dec 23, 2014 at 15:05

You should pay attention that a common family pressure doesn’t seem to be considered as an Islamic license for preventing the divorce. Then you’d better to do it without paying attention to their pressure. Do it according to Islamic laws, then you’d be freer to choose another wife or husband, although you’d better attempt to reach an agreement to carrying on your life. Don’t forget that according to Islam, divorce has some conditions: (www.islamquest.net)
