Divorcing one's wife to break a black magic spell

Q: We are a married couple of 28 years Alhamdullillah. We found ourself in a situation where someone did black magic to enter our bed and so far hurting my husband till I submit to him. It came to our attention that the spell can be broken through talaq. We hav no intention of talaq but for safety reasons. Once the spell is broken, will we be able to resume our marriage under this circumstance? 

A: This reasoning is corrupt. There is no guarantee of the spell breaking with talaaq. And even if the husband divorced the wife for this reason the talaaq is valid.

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