Will temporary marriages become a new trend?

Politicians in Mexico City have proposed that couples decide on the length of their marriage before tying the knot in an attempt to combat high divorce rates.

‘Happy couples’ would sign a contract, which would be minimum two years, that would state the arrangements agreed upon should they decide not to renew it. Almost like a will this would make it clear as how potential children and assets acquired during the marriage would be divided.

In spite of criticism from the Catholic church, the bill is apparently gathering support and could become reality before the end of the year. Could this ‘try before you buy’ scheme become a new wedding trend?
