Spanish law to rule out sexism

The Australian (article)

When the EU started to gain momentium I started to worry that we (USA) could not keep up with them, I mean after all it is a collection of sucessful countries. But luckly I don't worry much about the EU anymore, they seem to be destroying themselves (even faster than we can):

hanges to the marriage contract supported by the Socialist Government of Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, along with conservative Catholic and right-wing politicians, will force men and women to promise not only fidelity but equal shares of housework, childrearing and care of the elderly until death they do part.
As Australia grapples with Sex Discrimination Commissioner Pru Goward's report calling on men to do their fair share of household chores, Spain has used the force of law to propel lazy husbands off their couches and marital beds and into the historically female territory of the kitchen, bathroom and nursery.
