问: 如果我在马来西亚跟A女士注册了然后再跟B女士在马来西亚进行华人婚礼,我会不会被控重婚?

 

答:

  • 会被控重婚。
  • 刑事法典第494条文,任何已婚者,不论男方或女方,若在婚约仍然有效及配偶仍然在世之时,在国内或国外再娶或再嫁将被判最高坐牢7年兼罚款
  • 重婚者的第二个婚约是无效的。如果重婚者是男子,与他结婚的第二个女子不是他的合法妻子,无权继承他的遗产。
  • 刑事法典第495条文, 若已婚者隐瞒有关自己已婚的事实,与另一个女子/男子结婚,将被判坐牢最高10年兼罚款。

 

 

Section 494 Penal Code: Marrying again during the lifetime of husband or wife

Whoever, having a husband or wife living, marries in any case in which such marriage is void by reason of its taking place during the life of such husband or wife and whether such marriage has taken place within Malaysia or outside Malaysia, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to seven years, and shall also be liable to fine.

Exception—This section does not extend to any person whose marriage, with such husband or wife, has been declared void by a Court of competent jurisdiction, nor to any person who contracts a marriage during the life of a former husband or wife, if such husband or wife, at the time of the subsequent marriage, shall have been continually absent from such person for the space of seven years, and shall not have been heard of by such person as being alive within that time, provided the person contracting such subsequent marriage shall, before such marriage takes place, inform the person with whom such marriage is contracted, of the real state of facts so far as the same are within his or her knowledge.

 

Section 495 Penal Code: Same offence with concealment of the former marriage from the person with whom subsequent marriage is contracted

Whoever commits the offence defined in section 494, having concealed from the person with whom the subsequent marriage is contracted the fact of the former marriage, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine.
