Bantul Religious Court Decision No. 1243 of 2014: Irrevocable Divorce

The parties were married on 11 February 2012. Then, in March 2012, the plaintiff left the defendant's parents' home, where she had been living with the defendant, unable to cope with the poor way in which the defendant was treating her. The plaintiff submitted that the defendant would often leave her for several days without saying where he was going, and that the defendant only once provided her with the necessary financial support from the time they were married. Moreover, the plaintiff's attempts to keep the marriage on foot, hoping the defendant's attitude would change, had been in vain. Accordingly, pursuant to art 19(b) of Government Regulation No. 9 of 1975, in conjunction with art 116(b) of the Compilation of Islamic Laws, the court granted the plaintiff an irrevocable divorce (talak satu bain sughra) on the grounds that the parties had been apart for more than two years.
