The Decriminalization of Bigamy Act was a proposed bill submitted by Beika 2nd District Representative Takashi Morinozuka. The proposed Decriminalization of Bigamy Act aims to amend the 1985 Teiko Family Code decriminalizing bigamous relationships allowing males to legally enter multiple marriages at the same time. Challenged by several feminist movements and human rights organization, Akashi vetoed the bill saying that such measure is unconstitutional.
