The concept of divorce makes its first appearance in our sedra (24:1). The word for a divorce document is a get (spelled gimmel, tes). The Vilna Ga’on notes that nowhere in the pages of Tanach do the letters gimmel and tes appear together.

Thus, the very letters that spell the word get imply a separation. Once again, we see the depth of the Hebrew language in which the very letters convey the essence of the words they make up.
