Is a husband criminal in Egypt if he wants to marry a second wife without the first wife’s knowledge?

Social networking sites are buzzing in Egypt after talking about a new parliamentary legislation to criminalize remarrying without the knowledge of the first wife.

The Egyptian MP, Amal Salama, had demanded that the second marriage be criminalized without notifying the first wife, that the husband be punished by imprisonment if the wife was not formally notified, and that a penalty of imprisonment and a fine be stipulated for the husband if his marital status was not acknowledged in the marriage document.

Representative Hala Abu Al-Saad submitted a bill to amend the text of Article 11 regarding polygamy without the knowledge of the wife.

The project sparked widespread controversy on social media in Egypt.
