Posted October 25, 2018 08:30:38MEXICO CITY (AP) A new Mexican law requires the consent of both spouses before a couple can get married.
It was approved Tuesday by the National Assembly and the Senate.
The law requires both men and women to present a government-issued ID and sign a consent form.
It also requires the man to get a passport, and the woman to obtain a marriage license.
It is the latest move by Mexico to combat forced marriage, which is a crime in the country.
“The new law aims to improve the lives of Mexicans and address the social and economic conditions that make people resort to forced marriage,” said Javier Ortiz, head of the Mexican Council of Social Service.
The law was approved by the Senate, which also passed the bill on Tuesday.
