Tunisia lifts decade-old ban that prohibited Muslim women from marrying non-Muslim men

Tunisia recently abolished an archaic law which prohibited a Muslim woman from marrying a non-Muslim man. The move comes as part of a larger movement to empower women by enabling them to freely choose a spouse. Before this amendment, non-Muslim men wishing to marry a Muslim woman were required to convert to Islam prior to the union for it to be legally recognized.
