Term Limits for Marriage? Maybe

By Susan Jones | October 4, 2011 | 10:01am EDT

Here's a new front in the attack on marriage: Mexico City lawmakers reportedly are considering a plan that would allow couples to sign short-term marriage contracts of two years or more. Those contracts could be renewed if that's what the couple agrees to do.

Mexico City's liberal Democratic Revolution Party says the initiative makes sense in a city where divorce rates are soaring, but Mexico's Roman Catholic Church called the proposal "absurd" because it "contradicts the nature of marriage."

A vote on the proposal is expected by the end of the year, according to KDFW, the Fox affiliate in Dallas, which reported the story.
