Malawi: New Marriage Law Can Change Lives
Contact: Suzanne Trimel, strimel iglhrc. The Marriage, Divorce and Family Relations Law creates new forms of legal discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex individuals. While the law raises the minimum marriage age to 18—a positive move to combat child marriage—it also promotes a policy of exclusion against LGBTI Malawians that would likely translate into discrimination in education, housing, jobs and elsewhere. The law is expected to go into effect today, having been signed by the president on Wednesday, before he traveled to the United States for meetings. The law denies equal rights to form a family to transgender, intersex and other individuals whose identity does not align with that assigned at birth, and ignores the reality of any co-living arrangement not in the form of opposite-sex couples—including non-romantic relationships.

This article critically examines how these selected countries seek to address the conflict between cultural practices that lead to child marriage and the protection of children's rights. It also highlights conceptual as well as practical difficulties that law reformers face in regulating cultural practices, and the gaps in the reforms that need to be addressed.
