The government is looking to make changes to the country’s divorce laws which have stood for more than 50 years.

Among new proposals are that both men and women now only have to wait 30 days in order to remarry.

The law currently says that men are only allowed to remarry 180 days after the termination of a marriage, while women may only enter into wedlock 300 days later.

This ten-month delay was introduced as the law states that a women’s husband at the time of conception is automatically the father of a child.


In my opinion this law will not solve the crisis.
The world need to move to a marriage law by contractual law. Marriage shall be renovate contract every five year, with protection to minor product of the union, and divorce grant, if any of the partner does not want to continue in the contract. The society will be better.
