Article 16.1 - Marriage

TOPIC #0048: Article 16.1 - Marriage

"Men and women of full age, without any limitation due to race, nationality or religion, have the right to marry and to found a family. They are entitled to equal rights as to marriage, during marriage and at its dissolution." is changed in "Men and women of 18 years and older, without any limitation have the right to marry and to found a family. They are entitled to equal rights as to marriage, during marriage and at its dissolution." This to put a clear age on marriage ceremonies. There is also no point to add a finite list of non-limiting properties, because there shouldn't be limitations outside what is stated under 16.2. (that is left unchanged).
