Mexico City Considers Temporary Marriage Licenses

ABC News reported yesterday that lawmakers in Mexico City are considering a change in the civil code that would allow couples to apply for a temporary marriage license instead of one involving a lifelong commitment. Supporters say the option of these licenses would remove “the hassle of divorce” and would allow couples to choose the length of commitment (a minimum of two years). The bill’s co-author, Assemblyman Loenoel Luna, explains, “When the two-year period is up, if the relationship is not stable or harmonious, the contract simply ends…you wouldn’t have to do through the torturous process of divorce.” Lawmakers are expected to vote on the bill by the end of the year.
