The parties were married on 19 June 2013. The plaintiff submitted that, prior to their marriage, the parties knew little about each other and that the marriage was arranged by their parents. The parties never consummated their marriage and, on 25 June 2014, the defendant left the plaintiff. The plaintiff filed for an irrevocable divorce (talak satu ba’in sughra).
The court found that the parties' marriage could no longer fulfil the purpose of marriage, as stipulated in art 1 of Law No. 1 of 1974, in conjunction with art 3 of the Compilation of Islamic Laws. Moreover, pursuant to 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 the plaintiff an irrevocable divorce (talak satu ba’in shugra) on the grounds of ongoing conflict, and ordered her to pay court costs (IDR 391,000).
