Does the marriage of two people who stay away from each other for a long time become invalid?

Details of the Question
Is it religiously necessary for two people who stay away from each other for a long time to renew their marriage (nikah)?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Even if they stay away from each other for a long time, their marriage is not harmed. 

It is necessary to renew marriage in the following cases:

1. When a person exits Islam and becomes a Muslim again;

2. When irrevocable divorce (talaq al-bain) takes place.

Accordingly, if a person stays away from his spouse for a long time, their marriage is not invalidated; there is no need to renew marriage when he returns home. However, they can renew their marriage if they wish. There is no harm in doing it.
