Polygamy in Laos

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Polygamy is officially a crime in Laos, though the penalty is minor. The constitution and Family Code bars the legal recognition of polygamous marriages, stipulating that monogamy is to be the principal key of contracting a marriage in the country. While rare, there have been cases of polygamy practiced within the Hmong people.[1]
