Unhappiness over Beida government fees for foreign marriages

The Thinni government in Beida has produced new marriage fees which social media sites are protesting discriminate against Libyan women.

The new fees mean that every Libyan man who marries a foreign woman must pay LD 5,000, while every foreigner who marries a Libyan woman must find LD 3,000.  The cost of Libyans marrying other Libyans is LD 50.

A key concern is that the fees for foreign marriages are seen as fines for not marrying a Libyan. There are also complaints that the new decree does not deal with the granting of Libyan citizenship to the children of a Libyan woman who has married a foreigner.
