All aspects of Jewish life, including marriage and divorce, are governed by Halacha, which is a collection of the rules and regulations that constitute Jewish religious law. Regarding Jewish divorce, halacha gives the husband a disproportionate amount of power to end the marriage, because during the lifetime of the husband, the marriage can only be dissolved by a bill of divorce, also known as a GET, which is given by the husband to the wife.
Most Jewish men recognize their obligation to give their wife a GET and they will do so willingly. Divorce disputes are somewhat common, regardless of what religion is involved. If this occurs when an Orthodox Jewish married couple split up, the husband is in a position to refuse to give the GET and may use such refusal as leverage to gain an advantage or even try to achieve certain issues such as obtain child custody and/or certain assets. This can lead to Agunah situations, which leaves the wife unable to date or remarry.
