On the expiry of waiting period, the couple is considered divorced and beginning from this moment the husband is no longer responsible for the former wife and her expenses, but should be responsible for the maintenance of their common children, until they are growing up.

The man may initiate the process of divorce just by saying loud the talaq (special formula of rejection) three times. The talaq should be pronounced only first two times, also it may be not pronounced orally. In the third time talaq is pronounced and the divorce is not able to be changed.

In Muslim countries where polygyny is allowed, don’t exist waiting period before the man can remarry. On the other hand, the women must usually wait three months before she will tell the third talaq (this time is named “iddah”).
