Step in the wrong direction: traditionally first wives must approve of additional wives, now an amendment to a bill that was supposed to be an improvement for women has gone sour and taken a step backwards, stating explicitly that men never need any longer to do this, nor even inform wives beforehand. This is outrageous. It affects woman, the family, and society as a whole. Very bad news.
Also, unfortunate that inheritance is limited to 30% rather than 50%, and that no rights are granted to live together couples after a set passage of time together.
