salam mufti brother.
i have been married for 17 years with 6 beautiful children. my marriage to my husband has always been rocky. Because of his behaviour in 2009 he got sentenced to 14 years doing at least 7. my youngest children are twins boys aged 4 and eldest being 16. i have endured alot and still to the best of my ability did my wife durties where i took my children to see their father in prison. i have no immediate family and have been having health issues off lately. we met at prison on the 1st of this month got into a heated argument where i told him i hated him and did not want to stay with him. i was angry as am suffering alongside my children. he got very angry back and spoke i divorce u 3x. he only now a week later contacted me and says it was said in anger and does not want the divorce. He says i made him mad and that he wanted to get me back by hurting me. in my heart of hearts i know its final but plez understand the circumstances that we are both struggling and he feels insecure and we live apart from each other does the taalaq stand valid, if so as we are apart and have no physical contact for 3 years do i still do into iddat for 3 months. this will be very hard as i have no one else to do shopping and school rounds etc etc.
