Rabbi Pinchas Winston Answers Beautifully

We are taught that a husband is obligated to give a get to his wife if she desires to live in Eretz Yisroel and he does not wish to  - if we are also told that Shalom Bayis is more important - then why did the Sages say a get should be given?

During times of the Bais HaMikdosh when spiritual purity was possible, it was not right for a man to impose the spiritual impurity of Chutz L’Aretz on his wife. 
"If your desires are not  materializing, then your hashgochah pratis has placed you there [in your situation], and you have to work with it, not against it." 
                         Rabbi Pinchas Winston, שליט"א
