Marriing cousin might become officially illegal in Uzbekistan

The Ministry of Healthcare presented for discussion a draft law on amending Article 16 of the Family Code of Uzbekistan (circumstances that prevent marriage).

The draft law proposes to change part 3 of article 16, adding that marriage between children of mother and father siblings is not allowed.

In the current version of this part of the article, marriage is not allowed "between relatives in the ascending and descending line, between full and half brothers and sisters, as well as between adoptive and adopted children".
