What is the ruling about divorcing a woman in a non-consummated marriage? The Grand Ayatollah Shahroodi’s answer

SHAFAQNA – The Grand Ayatollah Shahroodi answered a question about divorcing a woman in a non-consummated marriage.

Question: I have married a woman but want to divorce her, considering that she is a virgin and the marriage is not consummated, we are engaged but the Nikah has been performed, I want to know her rights before and after?

The Grand Ayatollah Shahroodi: It is Wajib on you to pay her, half of her dowry, unless the divorce is the kind where the wife concedes her right to any dowry to the husband; in this case you can get back whatever you have agreed on them.
