The parties were married on 20 December 2012 and had one child. The plaintiff submitted, however, that, since February 2013, the marriage had become quarrelsome because the defendant was no longer providing the family with sufficient financial support. Consequently, the plaintiff and defendant had been separated for more than a year.
The court's efforts to counsel the plaintiff and reunite her with the defendant were unsuccessful and, accordingly, 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, the court granted the plaintiff an irrevocable divorce (talak bain shughra) on the grounds of ongoing conflict.
