Quote:
{2:236} There is no blame upon you if you divorce women you have not touched nor specified for them an obligation. But give them [a gift of] compensation - the wealthy according to his capability and the poor according to his capability - a provision according to what is acceptable, a duty upon the doers of good.

I suggest,
{2:236} There is no violation upon you if you divorced women [that you not provide for them] unless you have touched them or specified for them an obligation. And maintain them - upon the affording his capability and upon the stringent his capability - a maintenance per the customary, rightfully upon benefactors.

Quote:
{2:237} And if you divorce them before you have touched them and you have already specified for them an obligation, then [give] half of what you specified - unless they forgo the right or the one in whose hand is the marriage contract forgoes it. And to forgo it is nearer to righteousness. And do not forget graciousness between you. Indeed God, of whatever you do, is Seeing.

I suggest,
{2:237} And if you have divorced them before you have touched them and you have already specified for them an obligation, then half of what you specified - unless they forgo [it] or the one in whose hand is the marriage knot forgoes. And to forgo is nearer to piety. And do not forget graciousness between you. Verily God, of what you do, is All-Seeing.
