Family First NZ is concerned that the government may be turning a ‘blind eye’ to polygamous marriages in New Zealand when assessing entitlements to welfare support. The issue has come to light with a recent serious domestic violence case where the offender is legally married to the victim, with whom he has three New Zealand-born children, as well as a second 'wife' whom he married in a religious ceremony. Family First is concerned that immigrants or refugees who enter New Zealand in existing polygamous marriages are not being held to New Zealand's legal definition of marriage, and that benefit-eligibility rules may be being ignored. This indicates that the government may...more

As such the other 'wives' would be regarded for benefit purposes as being either single or sole parents, depending on their individual circumstances" (para 5).

This was up 15 on the previous year and the highest figure in 10 years of data released to the Herald under the Official Information Act.

Most complaints were from women against men but, since a new disclosure system was put in place, it seemed more men were also coming forward with claims they were abused by men in the...more
