Jakarta, Armfalcon.com – The dispute between Nikita Mirzani and Antonio Dedola has become a hot topic of discussion.
Nikita and Toni were reported to have married in an unregistered manner five months ago, and Toni was immediately accused of running away from home carrying Niki’s branded bag and bracelet.
As reported secondToni via his Instagram account claims that he has never committed a theft because before living in Indonesia, he was a police officer.
In the midst of this feud, they also claim to have divorced each other. All the swear words they throw to attack each other on social media.
Unregistered marriages are legal religiously, but due to the lack of legal recognition in the country, this can lead to financial losses in the future.
Here are a number of disadvantages of Niki and Toni’s siri marriage.
There will never be a mixture of wealth and debt
When a person gets married, all assets acquired by the husband and wife will become joint property, as long as there is no marriage agreement made by the two partners.
Therefore, when a divorce occurs, the husband and wife will not be able to sue each other for assets because any property or income earned by each husband is of course considered as inherited property.
Husband can be released from all his obligations
Because it is not legal by the state, it means that there is no legal force binding this marriage. That means there is also no obligation from 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.
If there are children, the status of the child is “not a legitimate child”
How can the child be considered a “legal child” if the marriage of the parents alone is a marriage that is not recognized by the state?
In Article 2 Law Number 43 of 1974 concerning Marriage states that children born out of wedlock only have civil relations with their mothers and their mothers’ families.
With this article, the status of property owned by father to child is not inherited.
But a child out of wedlock can actually be a legitimate child. Based on Article 272 of the Civil Code,
Children out of wedlock, except for those born from adultery or blood staining, are legalized by subsequent marriages from their father and mother, if prior to the marriage they have made a legal recognition of the child, or if the recognition is made in the marriage certificate itself.
Families cannot be protected by life insurance
There is one 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 appoint their child as a beneficiary because they have family or blood relations.
Meanwhile, customers can buy life insurance and appoint credit institutions as beneficiaries, because the customer in question has a debt-receivable contract.
Religiously, you may have marital ties with your spouse.
However, know that marriage is not legal in the state, therefore you do not have a family relationship with your partner, this clearly violates the principle of insurable interest.
