Sweden opposes laws which could stop couples divorcing

Published fredag 10 november 2006 kl 12.29

Sweden is joining several other EU countries in rejecting a new suggestion from the EU commission which would make it harder for some couples to get divorced.

The newspaper Sydsvenskan reports that the proposal is to reinforce family laws in the country the couple live in, even if they are citizens of another member state.

So it would prevent someone living in another country going back to his or her homeland and seeking a divorce from there.

All twenty-five EU countries would have to agree to the new rules, but even some Catholic countries in south and east Europe are criticising the idea, as their fairly restrictive laws are often ignored.
