Damages for Adultery

Whenever I mentioned about adultery and damages, many are actually caught by suprise. They never heard that one can claim damages for adultery.

Before claiming damages for adultery, the adulterer or adulteress must be made as a party of the proceeding, unless excused by the court on special grounds from doing so.


We are not looking at few hundred or few thousand ringgit here. When a party successfully claim damages for adultery against the adulterer or adulteress, such claim may varied from RM25,000.00 to RM200,000.00.

​Note that the amount of damages is left at the discretionary of the Judges. However, in the eye of law, such damages, if awarded, shall not include any exemplary or punitive element.
