Mexico City's 2009 law legalizing gay marriage could be followed this year with a law allowing temporary marriage licenses, according to Baptist Press. Lawmakers will be voting on a proposed bill for a minimum marriage contract of two years that could be renewed if the couple is happy. The licenses would include a pre-divorce agreement on the disposition of children and property if the couple decided to terminate the marriage. "When the two-year period is up, if the relationship is not stable or harmonious, the contract simply ends," said Leonel Luna, co-author of the bill and member of the leftist Party of the Democratic Revolution. "You wouldn't have to go through the tortuous process of divorce."
