Question

Assalamualeikum Islam attaches great importance to maintaining cordial relationships with Muslims and kinfolks. There are numerous saheeh ahaadeeths on the consequences of severing family ties. For example: The person who severs the bond of kinship will not enter paradise (Saheeh Al Bukhaari 5984). I understand that kinship refers to blood relationship. Now, a divorce entails separating family ties. How far is this hadeeth appropriate to (a) divorcees and (b) their children, assuming that husband and wife were not blood related? Jazaak ALLAH Khayran
