1. Islamic marriage contracts include a mahr (gift) stipulation from the groom to the bride that may be immedi- ate, ongoing, or deferred, and is payable upon demand. There is no minimum or maximum, and it becomes the sole property of the bride.
Haq Mahr is of two kind. Immediate and deferred. Immediate must be paid immediately after signing the marriage contract. The deferred one is paid at divorce.

There is minimum haq mahr but no maximum.

Her earnings are for her to keep.

This must be agreed and stated in the marriage contract if the wife wants it.

There is no such reason for divorce in Islam. Islamic marriage cannot end with such reason without going to arbitration and conciliation process first.

All women get sick during their marriage. Some get sick during pregnancy. If sickness was the reason for Muslim women getting divorce, the divorce rate would be much higher in Islam.

No need for that as the wife becomes the responsibility of the husband even financially.

That is not true.

"Many" Muslim women that YOU know, huh?

So can you support your claim by comparing divorce rate in the Western/Christian world with divorce rate in the Muslim world?
