The parties were married on 20 November 2012 before a marriage registrar from the local Office of Religious Affairs. They had no children. The applicant submitted that the parties' marriage became quarrelsome since January 2013. This was because the respondent was never satisfied with the applicant's financial contribution to their domestic life. Problems escalated in mid-2013 resulting in the respondent leaving the parties' home without first informing the applicant.
The court acknowledged that the purpose of marriage, as contained in the Qur'an, Surat Al Rum, verse 21, as well as art 1 of Law No. 1 of 1974, and art 3 of the Compilation of Islamic Laws, being a peaceful, hopeful and loving home, was no longer feasible. Therefore, pursuant to the Elucidation of s 37 of Law No. 1 of 1974, s 19(f) of Government Regulation No. 9 of 1975, and s 116(f) of the Compilation of Islamic Laws, the court acceded to the plaintiff's application for a revocable divorce (talak satu raj'i) on the grounds of ongoing conflict. The respondent failed to attend court.
