Today the ministers of justice of the EU met and aggreed on a deepened cooperation and a proposal for new divorce rules. The new proposal gives spouses of different nationalities living in different countries or who live together in another EU-country the possibility to choose which counry's divorce laws they intend to abide to.

Sweden says no to the proposal as much today as two years ago when it stopped the proposal. The Swedish resistance is about the issue that Swedish courts could be forced to base their judging on other countries' laws. This would mean a violation of the relatively liberal divorce law in Sweden. For example the person who wants a divorce might be forced to prove that the marriage is not working well.

Scandinavian women are not yet biologically ready for a cristan marriage because , under the law of the nature ,the lateness in the evolution force powerfully women to close the gap , breeding by different men in order to variegate the descendeants, in the mediterranean countries people divorce less because women herself already are very mixed so the man is less important to breed.
