Qortbawi proposes civil marriage draft law
A+ A-

BEIRUT: Caretaker Justice Minister Shakib Qortbawi referred a draft law to the Cabinet that would allow optional civil marriage in Lebanon without the need to remove the sectarian affiliation from the civil register, according to a statement from his office Sunday. 

The draft law gives Lebanese the right to have a religious or a civil wedding ceremony. 

The couple can then choose any foreign civil marriage law that they want to be applied to their marriage contract, as long as the statute is approved by Lebanon.
