The court acknowledged that, based on the facts of the preceding interlocutory decision, the parties' marriage had been quarrelsome since April 2015. This was because the respondent had demanded that the applicant spend beyond his means. Moreover, the respondent had often asked the applicant for a divorce. Despite the respondent's absence, the court, pursuant to art 19(f) of Government Regulation No. 9 of 1975, and art 116(f) of the Compilation of Islamic Laws, acceded to the applicant's request for a revocable divorce (talak satu raj'i) on the grounds of ongoing conflict. The court also ordered the applicant to pay to the respondent IDR 500,000 for iddah (three-month period after divorce has been granted).
