Happy valentines!

It is an offence for a couple already married in English/Statutory Marriage to later seek to re-marry themselves under Traditional/Native/Customary law. It is an offence punishable with 5 years imprisonment!
So couples that perform English wedding before payment of bride price and traditional weddings are earned!
Kindly see Section 47 of the Marriage Act.
