Divorcing one's wife so she can live a better life

Q: I have been married for 15 years and for past few years I am facing severe financial crisis. In this condition can I say to my wife to marry someone who is well settled and with my permission she marry another person.

A: If you have issued divorce and she completes the iddat then it is her choice to remarry or not.

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