Mexico City Considers Temporary Marriage Licenses
By Christina Ng
‘Til death do us part … for two years? Mexico City lawmakers are proposing legislation that would allow newlyweds to apply for temporary marriage licenses, instead of making the plunge into wedded life a lifetime commitment.
The legislation’s proponents argue that the hassle of divorce could be avoided by making these licenses an option, according to Reuters. The change to civil code was proposed this week and would allow couples to decide the length of the commitment, with two years as the minimum.
If couples are still enjoying wedded bliss when the contract ends, then they would be able to renew the license. And if they’re unhappy, the contract expires and they are both free without going through a divorce.

Is this really necessary?. They could live together...I guess they want to try this idea out and see if they want to continue...maybe they need to issue warranties..some think issuing limited licenses is the answer to the high divorce rate
I heard this on the radio and thought it one of the oddest ideas yet.
And this in a predominantly Catholic country?
