Implicating Divorce And Waswasas

Question ID: 17916

I have two questions:

1. If a wife complains to her husband about him not being a good husband and he says ‘marry someone else then’ or ‘why don’t you marry someone else then’ (can’t remember which one), without intending divorce but rather as a challenge as he knows the without him divorcing her she cannot marry someone else, will it count as a divorce? If yes, is a new nikkah required?

2. I keep imagining that i may have said words of divorce to myself in the past. These thoughts started coming after I learnt that saying words out loud even if no one is around count as divorce. I have no idea if it actually happened, what exact words I said, how many times I said them, if I uttered them out loud or not. I have a feeling this is a waswasa because I get many such thoughts. What’s the ruling on this.

1) No divorce in this case.
2) Do not worry about ‘waswasa’. No divorce has occurred.
