According to Shariah giving talaq (divorce) is not wajib (necessary) until the couples are in such a conflict in which they are unable to render their duties and obligations. Thus, the reasons mentioned above do not suffice for giving divorce:

لایجب علی الزوج تطلیق الفاجرۃ ولا علیھا تسریح الفاجر الا اذا خافا ان لا یقیما حدود اللہ فلا باس ان یتفرقا (الدر المختار مع الشامی: 4/144)
