1. 妻子(妻子)向丈夫(丈夫)申请婚姻无效,理由是基于双方并没有夫妇应有的性行为。
  2. 丈夫也索赔其中包括特结婚时所花费的费用RM14,236.00,丈夫不再担任妻子汽车贷款的担保人,归还手机,归还丈夫和妻子的照片, 以及赔偿金RM250,000.00为丈夫在婚姻期间遭受的情绪和精神伤害。
  3. 他们的婚姻是双方父母代他们决定的。在结婚前,妻子和丈夫从未见面,他们仅仅通过电子媒体进行交流。
  4. 在结婚的数月前妻子和丈夫才正式见面了。双方也同意了只有进行正式的结婚仪式后才同居,但很可惜的是双方后来并没有同居。
  5. 在法庭,双方同意因没有发生任何的性行为而将此婚姻归为婚姻无效,法院也批准婚姻无效。
  6. 法律改革(婚姻和离婚)法令非常清楚的制定了有关婚姻和离婚,赡养费,孩子的抚养费,孩子的抚养权及婚姻产业的分配的条规。除了通奸罪的损害赔偿外,法律改革(婚姻和离婚)法并没有提及任何其他形式上的损害赔偿,如本案件中丈夫要求的精神伤害赔偿。
  7. 丈夫要求的精神伤害赔偿应该通过民事法庭,而不是在离婚案件一同要求。
  8. 法律改革(婚姻和离婚)法里,有关赔偿,只有第58条文和第59条文允许有关通奸损害作出索赔,仅此而已。按照目前的法案,民事精神伤害赔偿案件和离婚案件必须分开诉讼。
  9. 丈夫没有任何试图去证明此婚姻无效是不公正及证明妻子是错的一方,故意拒绝与其他发生性行为因此让丈夫有权得到赔偿。以此类推,丈夫是没有权利得到任何的赔偿。此法院判决丈夫给予妻子的任何钱和礼物完全是出于自愿,双方也无权向对方追讨任何索赔。

 

  1. Wife (PW) filed a divorce petition against the Husband (RH) for the marriage to be declared null and void on the ground of non-consummation.
  2. RH cross-petitioned for damages which includes special damages of RM14,236.00 spent during the marriage, the withdrawal of RH from acting as a guarantor in PW car hire-purchase agreement, the return of the handphone, the return of photographs taken of RH and PW and general damages for RM250,000.00 for emotional and mental anguish suffered by the RH during the marriage.
  3. PW and RH were married on 11.12.2013. It was an arranged marriage made by family members of both parties. Before the marriage, PW and RH have never met in person and they merely communicated through the electronic media.
  4. PW and RH eventually met a few months before the marriage. It was agreed between PW and RH that they would only cohabit after going through the ceremonial marriage which unfortunately did not take place.
  5. On the hearing date, parties agreed for the marriage to be declared null and void due to non-consummation, which was granted by this court.
  6. It is very clear that the LRA was enacted to provide for marriages and divorces, maintenance for spouses, former spouses and children, the custody of children and for the division of the matrimonial property. Save and except for damages for adultery the LRA makes no mention of any other forms of damages such as the tortious claims on mental anguish made by the RH in this present case.
  7. The proper forum to litigate this claim by the RH is for the RH to proceed separately by way of a writ action as it would not be appropriate and or suitable to proceed with it under this petition.
  8. LRA had done so far is to allow specific claim for damages in the area of adultery under s.58 and s.59 of the LRA only and nothing else. The law as it stands appears to say that tort cases and divorce cases must be litigated separately.
  9. RH did not make any attempt to prove that the annulment would be unjust and that the PW is the guilty party who wilfuly refused to consummate the marriage and consequently therefore, due to the the PW’s conduct the RH is entitled to damages. In the premise the RH is not entitled to any damages. This court finds that whatever money or gifts given by the RH to the PW are purely on a voluntary basis and the parties have no claim against each other.
