Islam discourages divorce except as a last resort after having exhausted all other avenues to try and save the marriage. If divorce becomes inevitable, then Muslims need to avoid the bitter fights, custody battles and airing of dirty linen in public. Here are some tips on handling arguments that arise at such a time. (These tips can be used for arguments that arise on other occasions as well):
1. It takes 2 to argue. You can always refuse to participate.
8. Plan a time to have a discussion with your spouse about a specific issue that bothers you. Limit the discussion.
