The legislative purpose of Article 985 of the Chapter on the Family in the Civil Code before the revision of June 3, 1985, which provides that "Any person who has a spouse shall not marry again", is to reaffirm the genuine institution of monogamy. For any marriage in violation of this article, Article 992 shall apply, which provides that "For any marriage in violation of Article 985, interested parties may bring action asking the court to invalidate this marriage. But once the relationship of an earlier marriage has ended, this request will be denied." The absence of a statute of limitations on this right to bring action is not in conflict with the Constitution because allowing actions to be brought any time is necessary to maintain a monogamous society. In contrast to the revised Article 988, which renders later marriages void, the Chapter on the Family in the Civil Code before the revision only declares later marriages revocable. Therefore, later marriages are still valid unless they are invalidated by the court. Those later marriages arising from the circumstances of significant changes in the nation which caused earlier spouses to be separated and prevented their reunion, or even any contact with each other, inherently, are different from normal ones. For these later marriages having long time of actual cohabitation, if the above-mentioned Article 992 were applied, it would significantly disrupt the family life and human relations and might lead to social disorder. And this would be in conflict with Article 22 of the Constitution which provides that people*s freedoms and rights shall be protected. Therefore, according to this Court*s Interpretations Nos. 177 and 185, the petitioner of this case may request the court to retry this case.
