The parties were married on 9 March 2010. On 2 January 2011, the respondent left the applicant without his permission or for any apparent reason, never to return. After conducting his own investigations, the applicant discovered, on 3 December 2013, that the respondent had been living with another man. Having suffered emotionally from the entire experience, the applicant requested that the court grant him a revocable divorce (talak satu raj'i).
The court acceded to the applicant's request on the grounds of ongoing conflict between the parties, pursuant to art 19(f) of Government Regulation No. 9 of 1975, and art 116(f) of the Compilation of Islamic Laws. The court also acknowledged that the parties' marriage was no longer a peaceful, hopeful and loving domestic life based on the principle of One Almighty God, as envisaged by art 1 of Law No. 1 of 1974 on Marriage, and art 3 of the Compilation of Islamic Laws.
