Use of Violence Could Become Grounds for Divorce in Greece

"A bill submitted to Parliament yesterday proposes the toughest set of measures ever seen in Greece against domestic violence and asks for the first time that smacking children be outlawed and that the use of violence by one partner against another be grounds for divorce.

“The purpose of the bill is to protect relationships based on individual dignity, self-determination and self-respect within Greek families and therefore Greek society,” said Justice Minister Anastassis Papaligouras, who presented the draft law to the Inner Cabinet before it was submitted to Parliament."
