Do You Promise to Love, Honor and Obey ... For Two Years?


Facing an influx of divorces, some Mexico City lawmakers are proposing two-year marriage licenses.

Reuters is reporting that the proposal to Mexico City's civil code would allow couples to decide on the length of their commitment. The minimum marriage contract would be for two years and could be renewed if the couple stays happy.

"You wouldn't have to go through the tortuous process of divorce," said Leonel Luna, co-author of the bill. "If the relationship is not stable or harmonious, the contract simply ends."

Luna said his proposal is gaining support, and he expects a vote by the end of the year.
