Japan govt. split on separate surnames for couples

Posted by Junichi Kawagoe on 21.2010 News Out of English Newspaper   0 comments   0 trackback
Japan's governing coalition is split over a plan to allow married couples to have different surnames.

Justice Minister Keiko Chiba of the Democratic Party is in favor of allowing different surnames, and wants to submit a parliamentary bill to revise the Civil Code. Chiba told reporters on Friday that she is resolved to introduce changes allowing couples to keep their pre-marriage family names.

But Financial Services Minister Shizuka Kamei said he finds it hard to understand why married couples would want different family names. He said the separate-surname system should not be introduced at a time when family bonds are crumbling.

Kamei said whatever move the Democratic Party makes on the issue, it will be pointless as his People's New Party will absolutely oppose it.

The planned introduction of the separate-surname system also faces opposition from other legislators in the governing coalition. The bill is going to have a hard time winning support within the Cabinet and from the governing parties.
