Liang Huixing presents draft "Marriage and Family Law"

Noted civil law scholar Liang Huixing has presented a proposal to the National People's Congress that it adopt a law combining the Marriage Law and the Adoption Law, to be called the "Marriage and Family Law". Among other things, he also suggests a mandatory one-month cooling-off period whenever a couple applies for a divorce. At present, as long as both agree, the divorce is granted pretty much on request.

Here's a brief article (in Chinese) from Caixin; attached to the article is a complete draft of his proposed law.
