Getting or asking for a divorce due to not having children

Question ID: 38793

Assalamualaikum Mufti Sahb,
I have a question which I’d like to pose and if possible to get the answer from the Hanafi and Shafi’e point of view. I’ve tried looking it up but can’t seem to find an answer for it. Here’s how the situation is:
Zaid and Zainab are married for almost 8 years. They do not have any children. There is nothing wrong medically with both of them. They have exhausted all avenues to have children but Allah’s decree is such that they are childless till today. Zaid had been advised by a friend saying, “The two of you should separate from each other and get married to different people so then you can have children of your own.”
So, the question is as follows:
What is the best solution for this couple? Adoption? Keep on making doa to Allah? Separation?
Jazakallahu khaira.

Make Duaa and know Allaah is all knowing, all wise, and full of compassion.
