In Islam, the woman doesn't have the sole right of divorce. She can 'request' a divorce, and then it's either up to the husband to declare the divorce, or a judge to make a decision. No divorce is in place on a woman's words, alone.

The second issue is that there is no (proper) swearing in Islam except by Allah. Any swear done on anything else is not really valid.

Divorce can get complicated at times, and should be asked properly from a scholar in person to discuss all that concerns your particular case. Asking it here will probably give you an idea of the solution, but you shouldn't act on an answer here.

But to answer your question, in the worst case scenario, you'll need to give the Kaffarah of breaking a promise by making a second marriage. I'm not exactly sure what the Kaffarah would be, but I think an option is to fast three days in return. Simple!

  • Islam does give right to divorce to women it is called Khulah and it is widely practiced. – Islam Aug 31 '13 at 15:34
  • is it the practice when at the time of marriage the man agrees to give the right to his wife? If so can you please explain a bit more? – mavili Sep 2 '13 at 8:36
  • en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khula there are schools where husbands permission is not required but a permission only from the Islamic authority is required – Islam Sep 2 '13 at 8:53
  • that's no different to what I said then: "She can only 'request' a divorce, and then it's either up to the husband to declare the divorce, or a judge to make a decision. No divorce is in place on a woman's words, alone." – mavili Sep 2 '13 at 8:57
  • in other words, it comes back to the decision by judicial authorities or the husband if the woman agrees to pay compensation. but, for example, by just saying "you're now divorced from me" the woman can't divorce the husband. – mavili Sep 2 '13 at 8:59
