I was considering getting married, but i lost my religion! – taken by @trellalb – 2011

NowLebanon published: Lebanon’s first civil marriage, (yesterday in arabic) today.

The Lebanese sphere has been buzzing with the news since yesterday, but the headline is only half the story; “The request is now in the hands of the Consultations Committee at the Ministry of the Interior pending its official announcement.

I will only declare this a win when the papers are approved by the Ministry of Interior … call me a pessimist, but with disgrace like the “Orthodox Electoral Law” gaining monumental support across political factions in this dismal country, i can expect alot of bullshit rejections and obstacles to spur up in this process of approving any form of intermarriage between humans-carrying-different-pendants-on-their-necks in Lebanon.

Nonetheless i congratulate Lawyer Talal Husseini for discovering yet another loop-hole in the system😉
Lebanese Civilization, status: pending approval.
