Justice Ministry and Catholic Church differ on prenups

The Justice Ministry wants to reduce the divorce rate and prevent marriages forged with the intention of self-enrichment by introducing prenuptial agreements, said Justice Minister Štefan Harabin on August 25, after holding talks with Bratislava Metropolitan Archbishop Stanislav Zvolenský.

The Justice Ministry wants to reduce the divorce rate and prevent marriages forged with the intention of self-enrichment by introducing prenuptial agreements, said Justice Minister Štefan Harabin on August 25, after holding talks with Bratislava Metropolitan Archbishop Stanislav Zvolenský.

But the Roman Catholic Church has a different opinion.

"We are convinced that prenuptial agreements strengthen the divorce mentality in society," Zvolenský said.
