Abdin (Domicile – Actually Polygamous Marriages) Bangladesh: UTIAC 10 Sep 2012

UTIAC Whilst the Private International Law (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1995 amended section 11(d) of the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973 so that a potentially polygamous marriage would not be void if either party was at the time of the marriage domiciled in England and Wales, it did not alter the position regarding actually polygamous marriages. Under section 11(d) of the 1973 Act a polygamous marriage entered into outside England and Wales shall still be void if either party at the time of the marriage was domiciled in England and Wales.
