Ali Mohammed met recently divorced Australian Fantasia Means, who now he wants to make her his third wife but still married to his other wives. He now has moved to Australia with his first two wives.

The above character’s in the scenario is fiction.But the law of Bigamy is Non-Fiction ( True Law Act)

I am going to discuss the law of the Bigamy in Australia, What is Bigamy you ask?

Well, Bigamy is the act of marrying someone a second time even though you are legally married to another person.

Within the Marriage Act under Bigamy is Illegal in Australia and after recent discoveries, why hasn’t the law put in the consequences within Bigamy for these so called Frauds. Under this law the sequences in breaking this law, the punishment is Imprisonment for five years.

So with the latest rumours going on what is the law doing, these people should be punished within the law.
