Bill to amend the Marriage and Divorce Ordinance (Registration) (repeal of section 7), 5758 – [10] 2017

In this bill, it was proposed to repeal section 7 of the law altogether. Pursuant to this section, a person who does not register his marriage or divorce will be punished with two years of imprisonment. This provision may apply to any couple conducting a private marriage ceremony without registration.

Imprisonment for spouses who performed a private marriage ceremony constitutes a violation of fundamental rights to religious freedom and the privacy of the individual and is in conflict with the values of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state.
