Assalamu alaikum
My question is if this counts towards a divorce.
If a husband says to his wife during an emotionally sensitive discussion you send me divorce papers, the wife does not respond as is shocked. The husband then repeats this and the wife says no I will not. They then carry on living as they were….does this count towards anything?  I do not want to live in ignorance but cannot find any information regarding this. 
JazakAllah khair
