Initiative summary:

The Non-Sectarian Non-Violent Youth Lebanese Citizens (CHAML) NGO is campaigning for the right to civil non-confessional marriage in Lebanon.

The country’s laws do not provide citizens’ the possibility of civil marriages, i.e. outside of religious institutions. CHAML is working for a legal breakthrough based on the current existing national legislation.
