Q: What are the rulings of seperation before divorce?

A. If the separation between husband and wife is with the consent of the husband, he will have to maintain her during the separation.

If the wife leaves the marital home without the consent of the husband, he does not have to maintain her during the separation. It is sinful for her to leave the marital home without his approval.
