The study includes two chapters, while the first one defines divorce and its ruling “hokom” according to Shari’ah and Christianity, the other chapter of the research studies reasons for divorce for Christians, and how Shari’ah and the Jordanian Personal Status Law interpret these reasons. The study concludes that most of the divorce reasons in Christianity are already there in Shari’ah and the Jordanian Law, which is based on this magnificent Shari’ah.
