after reaching a settlement regarding custody of their children.
Marimuthu and his common law wife Raimah are now told they're not 'legally' married - 21 years and 7 children later. They're rubber tappers, numbered among Malaysia's poor and marginalised. Marimuthu gets his children back but loses his wife. Raimah gets access but loses a husband. Religious authorities score a win. Is this what justice looks like?
