Bandung Religious Court Decision No. 2580 of 2014: Irrevocable Divorce

The parties were married on 28 December 2008 and had one child. The plaintiff submitted, however, that, from September 2013, the marriage had become quarrelsome. This was the result of the defendant's violent and harsh demeanour and behaviour towards the plaintiff and their child, which had an obvious and unfortunate psychological impact on the child. The plaintiff also submitted that the defendant had spoken to her in such a manner since they were married, and that the defendant's excessively selfish attitude meant he would never listen to the opinions of others, nor did he ever provide his family with sufficient financial support. At the time of the proceeding, the parties had already been separated for eight months.

Due to the ongoing conflict between the parties, the court granted the plaintiff an irrevocable divorce (talak satu bain shughra), pursuant to art 39 of Law No. 1 of 1974 on Marriage, art 19(f) of Government Regulation No. 9 of 1975, and art 116(f) of the Compilation of Islamic Laws.
