Palangka Raya Religious Court Decision No. 210 of 2014: Irrevocable Divorce Granted

The parties were married on 13 June 2013. Initially, they lived with the plaintiff's parents for a week before moving to their own bunkhouse for a month. The plaintiff then left in August 2013. The plaintiff submitted that, since June 2013, the parties' marriage had been disharmonious due to:

  1. the defendant's dishonesty with regard to work and household finances;
  2. the defendant's disinterest in the plaintiff's advice; and
  3. the defendant stating he would prefer to live with his older sister than stay with the plaintiff.

The plaintiff maintained that an irrevocable divorce (talak satu bain shugra) was the only option after both parties' families had unsuccessfully sought to make them reconcile. The court, pursuant to art 19(f) of Government Regulation No. 9 of 1975, and art 116(f) of the Compilation of Islamic Laws concurred, granting the plaintiff an irrevocable divorce on the grounds of ongoing conflict between the parties.
