If you are a woman and in a relationship and your boyfriend is delaying with the wedding, then you should perhaps pack your things and move to the East African Country, Burundi as the government wants unmarried couples to get married by the end of the year.
According to a report on Aljazeera, unmarried couples have been given from now to the end of the year to legalise their relationships through church or state registrations.
In May, President Pierre Nkurunziza signed a new law which the government says will help protect women and create a more moral society, but some disagree.
The government insists a legal document recognising a marriage helps protect women and their children, especially when it comes to issues such as inheritance. However, others say the new marriage law infringes on people’s religious beliefs, customs and practices.
What do you think of this move by the government? Is that the right way to protect women? Share your thoughts on this in comments.
