Conditional divorce and repentance

Question ID: 18522

1. If a person thinks of a conditional divorce but does not say it out loud, would the divorce occur when condition is met? What if a person promised to do the same silently? I was absent mindedly tapping my fingers when a random unintentional thought crossed my mind that if I continue tapping it would count as one. I immediately stopped tapping my fingers and am now afraid to do so.

2. I was telling my wife that if the servant doesn’t answer my phone I will go (to him downstairs). While saying the sentence I got a thought in my head that ‘I will go’ can be words for implicit divorce therefore I immediately added ‘downstairs’ to the end of the sentence and said ‘if he doesnt answer phone I will go downstairs’. Eventually the servant didn’t answer the phone and I had to go downstairs to him. Does this scenario count as a conditional divorce?

3. Asking questions about divorce from scholars and using the word again and again does not count as divorce. Therefore can one discuss this topic with one’s wife using the word but not intending them?

4. I know now that Islam prohibits people who commit zina with each other from marrying until they repent. If a person and his fiance touched and kissed each other before nikah but they were not even close to having actual Intercourse, would this prohibition apply to them as well? If they got married without repenting (but repented afterwards) would their marriage be valid?
