Malta's vote to legalize divorce brings mixed reactions
May 31, 2011
In the aftermath of a referendum vote to legalize divorce, Catholic political leaders in Malta promised to move forward to strengthen existing marriages, and to resist any attempt to inaugurate "no-fault" divorce.
Proponents of legal divorce hailed their success in the Catholic country, while the nation's prime minister, who had opposed the measure, said that he would respect the wishes of the people.
