Q: If we only undergone customary marriage without register our marriage at JPN, are we a legal spouse?
A: Except for couples who have married before 01/03/1982, couples who are not registered with the Marriage Registry are not legal couples.
If you are not a legal spouse, you do not have the following legal rights:
(a) if you are not a legal spouse, naturally you do not require a divorce. If you broke up / separated / abandoned by your spouse, you have no rights claim for any matrimonial assets and alimony;
(b) if your spouse died intestate, you have no inheritance rights over his/her estate; and
(c) if your spouse passed on, you cannot initiate any legal proceedings on his/her behalf, such as suing his/her debtors.
