3 talaaq in joke

Q:

my husband told me talaq three times as a joke. what is the ruling of this matter.

A:

Marriage is a contract, like a business contract in a way. If someone signs a contract and then claims it was a joke, the contract is still valid. Likewise, divorce pronounced as a joke is still valid. The Prophet (peace be upon him) explicitly said this.

Almighty Allah knows best.
