Husband taking wife's permission to issue divorce

Q: If a wife is not ready to divorce her husband then how can a husband take divorce?

A: The husband does not need the wife's permission to divorce. Whether she consents or not, if he issues a divorce, it will be valid.

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