Portugal moves to end waiting periods before remarriage
Men have to wait 180 days to remarry but women are faced with a 300 day period. The Attorney General, Joana Marques Vidal, says this “discriminatory, unjustified and inadmissible.”
The different waiting period for men and for women violates the constitutional principle of equality, as well as the Constitution that states that, “everyone has the right to start a family and to get married on an equal basis,” according to a welcome statement from the Attorney General’s Office that has been submitted to parliament.
