Donggala Religious Court Decision No. 314 of 2014: Irrevocable Divorce Granted

The parties were married on 6 February 2012, after which time they had lived together with the plaintiff's parents. The parties had no children. The plaintiff submitted that by February 2013 the marriage had become quarrelsome because the defendant:

  1. would not provide for the plaintiff due to his own jealousy;
  2. could not be physically intimate with the plaintiff due to his own sexual impotence; and
  3. had failed to provide for the plaintiff for one year and nine months.

When problems escalated in February 2013 the defendant left the matrimonial home.

The court found that a sufficient reason to grant an irrevocable divorce, as required by art 119(2)(c) of the Compilation of Islamic Laws, that being ongoing conflict, existed. Therefore, it acceded to the plaintiff's request, pursuant to art 19(f) of Government Regulation No. 9 of 1975, and art 116(f) of the Compilation of Islamic Laws.
