Fez, March 2015. The social recognition of the status of "single mother" is the first obstacle to overcome, because in Morocco motherhood is placed exclusively within the institution of marriage. The latter is established by an agreement signed by the couple from the notaries and made public through the exchange of gifts and festive moments with families. The engagement is a first step towards the official relationship, but if there is no evidence (gifts, photos, testimonies of families), it is of no legal value in itself, nor for the possible recognition of the legitimacy of the birth of children conceived during the period of engagement ( provided under the current Code of family "Moudawana" ).
