Question :

I want to marry second time but without consent of 1st wife. What will be legal issue related to this?


  1. Second marriage without permission of first wife is not allowed in Pakistan. First of all for registration of second marriage you have to conceal your first marriage before registrar as he would not allow the second marriage registration without permission certificate from union council and on the other side your first wife may file a complaint against your before concern court . and Muslim family law ordinance 1961 says

    “Any man who contracts another marriage without the permission of the Arbitration Council shall,

    (a) pay immediately the entire amount of the dower, whether prompt or deferred, due to the existing wife or wives, which amount, if not so paid, shall be recoverable as arrears of land revenue; and

    [10][(b) on conviction upon complaint be punishable with the simple imprisonment which may extend to one year and with fine of five hundred thousand rupees.]”
