A group of men who have vowed never to marry or have children will meet in Rome this week to decide the various rules that will apply to people who want to marry or have children.
“We didn’t want people encumbered by the experience of actually having a partner or children – or of hoping to one day have a partner or children – to make decisions about this type of thing. It’s too important,” a spokesperson for the group said.
The men will discuss topics including abortion, contraception, marriage and divorce. “All topics that we’ve heard a lot about,” the spokesperson said.
Although some alterations to rules may be made, he said that most, including a ban on same sex marriage, will probably remain largely the same. “When it comes to not getting married, we’re experts,” he said.
