Is premature ejaculation grounds for divorce?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is ejaculation praecox (early ejaculation) a reason for the wife to brake the marriage?
I know that impotence is a reason for that, but if someone comes afte 10 or 20 seconds, how it is in this case.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, who replied that if this is upsetting the wife and causing her to miss out on her own pleasure, then there is nothing wrong with her asking for a divorce, but if she has children she should not be too hasty. And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
