Burundi Orders All Unmarried Couples To Wed By End of 2017

All Unmarried couples in the East African country of Burundi have until the end of the year to legalise their relationships through church or state registrations.


This is in line with a controversial law signed by President Pierre Nkurunziza in May 2017 which is pegged on creating a “more moral Burundian society”.



Speaking to Al Jazeera, Burundi’s Minister for Human Rights Martin Nivyabandi warned that couples who will not have married by the end of 2017 will be charged in court. After December punishment will be carried out towards those families who will not be legally married…If they don’t respect the law some of them will be taken to court and jailed.


The government insists a legal document recognising a marriage helps protect women and their children, especially when it comes to issues such as inheritance. However, others say the new marriage law infringes on people's religious beliefs, customs and practices.
Others argue they cannot afford to marry as it is an expensive affair that entails paying a bribe price and organising a wedding ceremony.


Nonetheless, some couples in Burundi support the new law saying it is necessary to have a legally recognized marriage.

This is a very good initiative, How can 2 people be living together under one roof carrying out the activities of married couple and refuse to be legally joined together

This way women who have been cohabiting with spouses who have been enjoying free sex will finally be married and the shame of been "Baby mamas" or living in GF will be erased.

Am sure that the women will be the happiest with this news.

Abeg somebody should propose this bill at the National Assembly so that all this guy's getting the milk for free can finally marry.

Gbam! We need something like this in Nigeria, the baby mama thing is becoming too much. Guys dont want to be serious again because they can get free baby factories.

I like this law. Get married or stop cohabitation. Wish someone would bring this here. The government should have gone a step further by organizing mass weddings for those who can't afford it
