Five months into 2017, the Bogor Religious Court office has received 796 divorce petitions, 620 of which were filed by wives, according to an official. 

“Per day, we could receive five to 10 divorce petitions,” court clerk Agus Yuspiain said on Monday, adding that most couples  wanted a divorce for economic reasons.

However, several decided to withdraw their petitions after going through a reconciliation process with officials at the court. 

“Some of them just wanted to test their spouses and demanded more attention. Some petitioners even retracted their case before the trials commenced because they changed their minds,” he said as quoted by tribunnews.com. (fac)
