Article 147 of the Civil Code stipulates that a person legally married cannot enter into a new union and therefore a new marriage without the first one having been dissolved by divorce proceedings. Any person in irregularity is under the application of the article 433-20 of the Penal Code and risks one year of prison with a fine amounting to 45?000 euros.
