South Jakarta Religious Court Decision No. 563 of 2014: Irrevocable Divorce Granted

The parties were married on 25 September 2005 and had two children. The plaintiff submitted, however, that she and the defendant had quarrelled regularly since October 2010. This was a result of, among other things:

  1. the parties not being able to agree on how to manage their finances;
  2. the plaintiff no longer being able to be physically intimate with the defendant due to her own mental health issues;
  3. the parties holding different views on how to educate their children; and
  4. the parties no longer communicating.

The plaintiff claimed that she had already tried to work with her family and the defendant to save the marriage, but to no avail. Judicial mediation was similarly unsuccessful. The plaintiff, however, then made a verbal request before the court that her application be withdrawn. Pursuant to art 54 of Law No. 7 of 1989 on the Religious Judiciary, the court acceded to the plaintiff's request, noting that the defendant had no objections.
