My Husband and I argued quite badly when he said to me I divorce you ever since it has left me worried as we are still together, I keep thinking now we are divorced what are the laws of divorce in Islam I am a shia Muslim my marja is Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei (HA)

Answer: Alaykum Salam.
I am going to outline the conditions that should be fulfilled so that divorce can be deemed valid.
The intent, by either or both parties, to go their own separate ways. That is, the divorce shall not be in order when it is done in jest, inadvertently, or by someone who is not able to discern what it means to divorce ones partner.

Divorce shall not be enforced, unless a particular procedure is followed. The formal wording of divorce should be recited in Arabic, for those who can speak the language, in the presence of two witnesses of impeccable character.
