Mexico City ‘Proposes’ Two-Year Marriage License
'Til "two years" do us part!
If you'd rather lease than own, this may be for you. Officials in Mexico City are considering a proposal that would replace the traditional marriage license with a two-year contract. The bill is being considered because of the high rate of divorce, and because of the legal entanglement involved when a marriage ends in divorce.
Do you think this is a good idea?
"The proposal is, when the two-year period is up, if the relationship is not stable or harmonious, the contract simply ends," Leonel Luna, the Mexico City assemblyman who co-authored the bill told Reuters.
Obviously happy couples could renew the contract. Provisions would be made for the division of property and children, in the event the couple decides not to renew the contract.
