The Law Reform (Marriage and Divorce) Act 1976 is often considered to be the backbone of family law for non-Muslims in Malaysia. It was enacted to bring about a uniform law applicable to non-Muslim marriages.
In the face of the customs of the different races living in Malaysia, the drafting and the implementation of the new legal regime have not been straightforward. Nevertheless a good appreciation of the Act is essential for a proper knowledge of non-Muslim family law in Malaysia.
