100 Should Resentment Or Antipathy Arise Between Husband And Wife






he is
not to divorce her but to bide in patience throughout the course of one
whole year 68


Divorce is strongly condemned in the Baha'i Teachings. If, however,
antipathy or resentment develop between the marriage partners, divorce is
permissible after the lapse of one full year. During this year of
patience, the husband is obliged to provide for the financial support of
his wife and children, and the couple is urged to strive to reconcile
their differences. Shoghi Effendi affirms that both the husband and wife
have equal right to ask for divorce whenever either partner feels it
absolutely essential to do so.

In Questions and Answers, Baha'u'llah elaborates a number of issues
concerning the year of patience, its observance (Q and A 12), establishing
the date of its beginning (Q and A 19 and 40), the conditions for
reconciliation (Q and A 38), and the role of witnesses and the Local House
of Justice (Q and A 73 and 98). In relation to the witnesses, the
Universal House of Justice has clarified that in these days the duties of
the witnesses in cases of divorce are performed by the Spiritual
Assemblies.

The detailed provisions of the Baha'i laws on divorce are summarized in
the Synopsis and Codification, section IV.C.2.a.-i.
