South Jakarta Religious Court Decision No. 2584 of 2014

The parties were married on 3 March 2013 and had no children. The plaintiff submitted, however, that she and the defendant had only been married for one year before they had begun to quarrel regularly. Their quarrelling, she submitted, had resulted from:

  1. the plaintiff always having to ask the defendant for financial support;
  2. the plaintiff always having to ask the defendant to be physically intimate with her, given her responsibility to her mother and younger siblings to have a child;
  3. the defendant not acknowledging the plaintiff's responsibilities to her own family, of which she was the backbone;
  4. the defendant not caring about the plaintiff's daily living expenses, including rent payments, which the plaintiff would cover herself; and
  5. the defendant lacking initiative and responsibility towards the plaintiff.

The court, pursuant to art 39 of Law No. 1 of 1974 on Marriage, art 19(f) of Government Regulation No. 9 of 1975, and art 116(f) of the Compilation of Islamic Laws, granted the plaintiff an irrevocable divorce (talak satu bain sughra) on the grounds of ongoing conflict.
