Free to Love

Vocable (Anglais) - - A 360 -

Tu­ni­sia has abo­li­shed a 1973 law that ban­ned wo­men from mar­rying non-Mus­lims. Pre­sident Be­ji Caid Es­seb­si’s spo­kes­wo­man made the an­noun­ce­ment in Sep­tem­ber, congra­tu­la­ting wo­men on gai­ning "the free­dom to choose one’s spouse." Un­til now, a non-mus­lim man who wan­ted to mar­ry a Tu­ni­sian wo­man had to convert to Is­lam. Ho­we­ver, men were al­lo­wed to mar­ry wo­men of any faith. The dis­cri­mi­na­tion was seen as vio­la­ting Tu­ni­sia’s cons­ti­tu­tion which was adop­ted in 2014 in the wake of the Arab Spring re­vo­lu­tion.
