"Article 12 of the 1999 Family Code of the Azerbaijan Republic states that, 'Marriage is not permitted between individuals of whom one or both are in another marriage' (12.0.2.). Nevertheless, the popularity of such marriages has significantly grown over the twenty-five years since independence. In the opinion of lawyer Elchin Sadiqov, 'Based on this article, we can formally consider polygamy to be unlawful in Azerbaijan, but no sort of penalty is provided for violating this point of the article. Because of this, polygamous marriages, unregistered, of course, are in principle not prohibited for men or for women'" (para 1-2).
