Whereas A Marriage Contract was entered into on the ___________ between me, _____________________ son of ____________________ resident of ___________________________of  the one part, and

Ms. __________________ daughter of ________________________________resident of ______________________ of the other part.

And Whereas this marriage is unconsummated till date.  the parties in the first instance wanted to give effect to this marriage, consummate it after “Rukhsati” and to live amicably. But later, before “Rukhsati” could take place, differences cropped up and there were constant quarrels and unhappy alterations which gave rise to bad blood between the parties and in spite of repeated efforts of the parties’ relations to bring about a settlement the affairs of the parties went from bad to worse. This situation led to mutual hatred between the parties and no alternative having been left with me but to divorce the other party;

NOW this deed witnesses that, the said ________________________ [Husband], do hereby divorce the said Ms. _____________________________ [Wife], absolutely, completely and irrevocably, by pronouncing upon her talak and by severing all connections of husband and wife with her for ever and for good.

I, the said ______________________ son of _________________________ divorce you, __________________ daughter of ____________________ three times, irrevocably and completely, I divorce you, I divorce you, I divorce you.

Therefore  the said Ms.______________ stands under no obligation to me as wife and it is lawful for her to contract marriage with whomsoever she may choose to do.

In Witness Whereof, I, the said ____________________ do hereby set my hand to this deed of divorce this ___________ day of __________________, year___________ .

______________ [Husband]
