Blitar Religious Court Decision No. 3420 of 2014: Irrevocable Divorce

The parties' marriage was arranged. After only six days, the parties had begun to argue because:

  1. they could not adjust to one another; and
  2. the defendant had become romantically involved with another woman.

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 art 39(2) of Law No. 1 of 1974, art 19(f) of Government Regulation No. 9 of 1975, and art 116(f) of the Compilation of Islamic Laws, the court granted a divorce on the grounds of ongoing conflict. Accordingly, the court acceded to the plaintiff's application for an irrevocable divorce (talak satu ba'in sughro).
