The parties had three children, one of whom had passed away prior to the proceeding. Since 2013, the parties' marriage had been disharmonious after the defendant had had an extra-marital affair and married this other woman in December 2013. In addition, the defendant's unemployment meant he was unable to provide the plaintiff and their children with any financial support, and the money he did have he would spend on his new wife, rather than paying back debts he had with other people. As a result, the parties had lived separately since January 2014. Accordingly, the court, pursuant to art 19(f) of Government Regulation No. 9 of 1975, in conjunction with art 116(f) of the Compilation of Islamic Laws, granted the plaintiff an irrevocable divorce (talak satu bain sughra) on the grounds of ongoing conflict.
