Bajawa Religious Court Decision No. 12 of 2014: Revocable Divorce

The parties were married on 26 June 2010. Initially, the marriage had been harmonious. The applicant submitted, however, that, since around 8 February 2013, his relationship with the respondent had become strained because:

  1. the respondent often left the house for no apparent reason and unbeknownst to the applicant;
  2. the respondent often quarrelled with the applicant's parents;
  3. the respondent was resistant to advice and if the applicant counselled her, the respondent would become angry and suicidal; and
  4. the applicant wanted a child while the respondent was infertile and would regularly visit a shaman.

Accordingly, since that date, the parties had lived separately.

Due to 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 granted the applicant a revocable divorce (talak satu raj'i).
