South Jakarta Religious Court Decision No. 2675 of 2009: Revocable Divorce Granted

The parties were married on 6 September 1986 and had three children. The applicant submitted that, from October 2003, he and the respondent had quarrelled often. This was a result of:

  1. a difference of opinion regarding domestic affairs;
  2. a tendency to argue over the same matters repeatedly;
  3. the parties no longer caring about each other, while the applicant busied himself with work-related matters to avoid further arguments with the respondent; and
  4. there having been no physical intimacy between the parties for four years.

Problems escalated on 25 June 2012 when an argument between the parties resulted in the applicant leaving the matrimonial home. After judicial mediation proved unsuccessful, the court, pursuant to art 19(f) of Government Regulation No. 9 of 1975, and art 116(f) of the Compilation of Islamic Laws, granted the applicant a revocable divorce (talak satu raj'i) on the grounds of ongoing conflict.
