Bambang & Mayangsari have an unregistered marriage, here are the 4 disadvantages! My Money – 3 hours ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – As is known, the marriage of Bambang Trihatmodjo and Mayangsari was carried out in a siri manner, which means it was legal only from a religious perspective.

A marriage like this can actually pose a number of risks both from a legal and financial perspective. And women could be the ones who suffer the most in the long term, as can children.

So what kind of financial losses will be experienced by couples who enter an unregistered marriage? The following is the explanation.

The husband can be released from all his obligations

Because it is not legal in the state, it is a sign that there is no legal force that binds this marriage. This means that there is no obligation on the part of the husband to be the breadwinner who supports his wife and family.

As a wife, you also cannot file any demands because this marriage is not valid in the eyes of the law.

There will never be any wealth like this

When someone marries, all assets obtained by the husband and wife will become joint property, as long as there is no marriage agreement made by the two partners.

Therefore, any property or income obtained by each couple is certainly considered inherited property.

If there are children, the child’s status is “illegal child”

How can the child be considered a “legitimate child” if his parents’ marriage is a marriage that is not recognized by the state?

In Article 2 Law Number 43 of 1974 concerning Marriage states that children born outside of marriage only have a civil relationship with their mother and their mother’s family.

With this article, the status of property belonging to father to child is not inherited.

However, to solve this problem, if the child can prove this and the father also provides a confession accompanied by a court decision, then he can be said to be entitled to the father’s inheritance.

Families cannot be protected by life insurance

There is a principle in insurance called insurable interest. This principle explains that a person can insure himself because there is an underlying family or economic relationship.

For example, someone can buy life insurance and designate their child as the beneficiary because they are related by family or blood. Meanwhile, customers can buy life insurance and appoint a credit institution as the beneficiary, because the customer in question has a debt and receivables contract.

Religiously, you may have a marital bond with your partner. However, be aware that the marriage is not legally valid in the state, therefore you have no family relationship with your partner, this clearly violates the principle of insurable interest.
