Côte d’Ivoire: Bill to Amend Marriage Law Approved

The Council of Ministers of Côte d’Ivoire approved a bill that would substantially amend the country’s marriage law. The bill, which was drafted as part of a package of new laws in the areas of family and inheritance law, aims to encourage equality between men and women, particularly by curbing traditional practices.  At the same time, the bill would explicitly prohibit same-sex marriage.
