Family objection, polygamy: reasons Malaysians elope to Thailand to marry

ALOR SETAR, Malaysian couples who got married in Thailand are normally those whose intention to marry were opposed by their families, or men taking another wife, but who are not able to get the permission of their first wife, said an agent that offers marriage service in Thailand.

The agent, who requested to be known only as Shed, said he also helped to manage the divorce process of Malaysian couples whose marriage are registered in Thailand.

Malaysian couples whose marriage are registered in Thailand, but not registered in Malaysia, will have to dissolve their marriage at the Malaysian Consulate in Thailand first to be divorced before they can remarry, he added.
