The parties were married on 18 March 2010 and had one child. They had lived with the plaintiff's parents for one year and six months, but by June 2011 the marriage had become quarrelsome. The plaintiff submitted that this was because the defendant would direct profane language at her, even frequently requesting a divorce. In August 2011, the defendant left the plaintiff without first informing her, and never returned. The plaintiff submitted that the parties had consequently been separated for one year and eight months, which had caused her great emotional suffering. Resigned to the fact that the parties' marriage could not be saved, the plaintiff requested that the court grant her an irrevocable divorce (talak satu ba'in sughra).
Despite the defendant's absence from court, the court, pursuant to art 39(2) of Law No. 1 of 1974, art 19(f) of Government Regulation No. 9 of 1975, and art 116(f) of the Compilation of Islamic Laws, acceded to the plaintiff's request on the grounds of ongoing conflict.
