Mexico City hopes to transform the concept of marriage by proposing a new two-year marriage license.
Leftist politicians are hoping that the new two-year policy will simplify the termination of short, unhappy marriages, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.
"The proposal is, when the two-year period is up, if the relationship is not stable or harmonious, the contract simply ends," said Leonel Luna, a Mexico City assemblyman and member of the leftist Party of the Democratic Revolution, reports Time.
The marriage contract would specify how shared assets and children would be divided up at the end of the two-year commitment, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.
Despite the many supporters, there is a large portion of the population against the new proposal.''This reform is absurd. It contradicts the nature of marriage,'' Hugo Valdemar, spokesman for the Mexican archdiocese, said.
Marriage in Mexico City may change from "Til death do us part" to "Til I'm sick of you," reports Time.
