date:2019/11/25 Clicks:105
The Marriage Law of the People's Republic of China (hereinafter referred to as Marriage Law) stipulates the freedom of marriage, including the freedom to marry and the freedom to divorce. However, under specific circumstances, the marriage law has made corresponding restrictions to sue for divorce.
Article 34 of the Marriage Law imposed certain restrictions on men filing for divorce. It stipulated that:“A husband may not apply for a divorce when his wife is pregnant or within one year after the birth of a child or within six months after pregnancy suspension. This restriction shall not apply in cases where the wife applies for a divorce, or when the people's court deems it necessary to accept the divorce application made by the husband.”
