Atambua Religious Court Decision No. 6 of 2012: Revocable Divorce Granted Due To Ongoing Conflict

The parties were married on 6 April 1980 and had two children. The applicant submitted that the parties had been happily married for 30 years. By June 2011, however, the marriage had become quarrelsome after the respondent had had an extra-marital affair with another man, whose identity the respondent had kept concealed from the applicant. The applicant also submitted that the respondent would return home in the middle of the night, flout or ignore the applicant's advice, become angry with the applicant, use profane language with the applicant, and had even requested that the applicant divorce her as quickly as possible before a religious court. As a result, the parties had been sleeping in separate beds since 18 February 2012. The applicant submitted that the information with which he had provided the court was sufficient to be granted a divorce (talak satu raj'i), pursuant to art 116(f) of the Compilation of Islamic Laws.

The court acceded to the applicant's request, granting him a revocable divorce on the grounds of ongoing conflict, pursuant to art 19(f) of Government Regulation No. 9 of 1975, and art 116(f) of the Compilation of Islamic Laws.
