Yes it does, but it always winds up being from the Left. The Right in Mexico never wants change especially in regards to paying their fair share of taxes and having to share power with a bunch of 'indios'. They resist. And the USA is always backing up the elitist parasitical class in Mexico.
Marriage is for children, and people that young are rarely mature enough to raise children.
Their parents wind up raising their own grandchildren if some 18-year-old girl gets pregnant. That is what happened with a neighbor. She had a one night stand with a boy and got pregnant. She is going to have the child thinking it is going to be easy to raise a child. She has no clue. But Mexican families are very close and they always are there dealing with aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, neighbors, etc. None of them find out of wedlock births all that bad....because in the end? A worse crime is to have an abortion in a very Roman Catholic nation where it is illegal to abort a fetus.
I think marriage should be up to the people in it. Government has no business telling responsible adults whom or how many people they can marry.
The government doesn't agree. They don't agree with polygamous marriages. They don't agree with many aspects of things. Frankly I think people should arrange their family structures how they agree to do it. And as long as it is not some young child who doesn't have any self agency and it is between consenting adults? I agree that the government has very little to do there. As long as Dick and Jane and or Rod and Todd or Jane and Mary agree to the union? No more interference. But if they decide to get violent in a marriage and hit each other and or bicker over property the law should apply equally to all types of arrangements.
