Terengganu, an eastern state in the country of Malaysia, is offering free second honeymoons and counseling to troubled couples in the hopes of saving their relationships. The state hopes it will slow their skyrocketing divorce rate.
The conservative Muslim state follows the Islamic custom where divorce is legal, but still considered a distasteful act. The program has already been tested on 25 couples, with favorable results.
It is easy for couples to fall out of touch with each other over the course of many years of marriage. With kids and work and other responsibilities, a marriage can suffer from neglect. It will be interesting to see if this program is successful at bringing couples back together. A week’s romantic vacation seems like a good place to start.
If you are considering divorce, please contact our firm for expert, compassionate legal counsel.
