Suspended talaaq

Q: We are married since last ten years. After four years my husband fights with me and told me if you call me then you have talaaq from me after that I called him by other person and talked with him after that about one year we fights again about the matter that I have called one relative girl and we discussed very much after that that girl calls my husband and told him that your wife fights with me and my husband come home and told me that you called that girl I said no he told me tell me truth if you don't tell me true then our relationship will break for ever after that we are separate now please tell me what is the way if we want to live together?

A: In the first case when you did not speak to your husband directly the talaaq did not take place. When he said that the relationship will break forever, if you did not comply with his requirements then this statement of his will be applicable. If he had intended divorce then divorce will take place.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
