Morocco Passes Laws to Protect Unmarried Couples

Morocco has recently passed a law to protect unmarried couples from discrimination and harassment. The law, which was passed by the Moroccan Parliament in July 2020, is a major step forward for the country in terms of protecting the rights of unmarried couples.

The law states that unmarried couples are to be treated the same as married couples in terms of legal rights and responsibilities. This includes the right to rent a home, open a joint bank account, and receive medical care. The law also states that unmarried couples are to be treated with respect and dignity, and that any discrimination or harassment based on their relationship status is prohibited.

The law is a major victory for Morocco’s LGBTQ+ community, as it provides legal protection for same-sex couples who are not legally allowed to marry in the country. It is also a major step forward for women’s rights, as it gives unmarried women the same rights and protections as married women.

The law is a sign of progress for Morocco, which has traditionally been a conservative country. It is also a sign that the country is becoming more open and accepting of different lifestyles and relationships.

The law is a major step forward for Morocco, and it is hoped that it will lead to further progress in terms of protecting the rights of all citizens, regardless of their relationship status. It is also hoped that the law will help to reduce discrimination and harassment against unmarried couples, and that it will help to create a more tolerant and accepting society.
