Same-sex marriage, assisted fertilization, the right to choose the order of the surnames that a child will have and the protection of the environment are some of the rights consecrated in the new Civil and Commercial Code that will come into effect today and change several key laws and rules on everyday life.

“This is the Code of democracy,” said Justice Secretary Julián Álvarez, one of several government officials who celebrated the enactment of the Code that was drafted by a commission that was led by Supreme Court Chief Justice Ricardo Lorenzetti over one year.

Justice Minister Julio Alak’s number two said the code updated the country’s norms to the 21st century.

“There are no longer differences between men and women. The new Code has an updated language,” the member of the Kirchnerite youth organization La Cámpora said. “If someone wants to get divorced, he or she will be able to do it without needing to feel ashamed.”

Álvarez also said that the Code expands the rights of children and youth in line with international conventions.

“You can’t start to have rights only when you turn 18,” he explained.

President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner did not make any reference to the new Code yesterday, which she signed into law last year in a ceremony at the Pink House.

Earlier this year, Lorenzetti and Supreme Court Chief Justice Elena Highton de Nolasco headed an event to introduce the new Code to judges at the central courthouse and praised it as a “paradigmatic change.”

The Code — which unified the Civil and Commercial Code — was welcomed by several sectors as it brings order to a reality that did not exist when Dalmacio Vélez Sarsfield wrote the original version in 1869. It did, however, come under fire from conservative sectors — such as the Catholic Church — and also criticized by progressive groups for having left behind several issues.


The new Code incorporates the right of same-sex couples to get married in tune with a law passed in 2010 by the ruling Victory Front (FpV) and its progressive allies.

“The Code not only respects the idea of equality and non-discrimination for sex or gender orientation but also incorporates regulations to assisted fertilization techniques,” expert Marisa Herrera explained to the Herald last year.

The Code also simplifies divorce, which was one of the issues that angered Catholic leaders.

Adopting a child has been a n onerous process for people over the past few years. Reformers sought to simplify the paperwork and grants not only married couples the right to adopt a child. The new Code highlights that... (Read More)

Marriage: Same-sex couples are allowed to marry. Both members of the couple have the same rights.

Divorce: Paperwork becomes simpler. Either spouse can request a divorce and it is no longer necessary to explain why the split is taking place. In the past, infidelity had to be proven.

Pre-marriage arrangements: Spouses can reach settlements on separation and the administration of their assets.

Civil unions: Couples who do not marry can be registered in a civil union. They can reach agreement on the termination of the union, distribution of house chores or the separation of properties.

Assisted Reproduction: Techniques such as artificial insemination, in-vitro fertilization are recognized. Filiation through these techniques is equated with natural filiation and adoption.

Adoption: Paperwork becomes simpler. The interest of the child is taken into account. A couple or a single person can adopt a minor. The child has the right to know his/her origins.

Parental responsibility: Relationships between the child and his/her parents have to be based on the protection of the child’s interests. The child is progressively given greater participation in the decisions that affect him or her.

Name: Couples can choose the order of their children’s surnames. Spouses can decide whether they want to take their wife’s or husband’s surname.

Right to personal image: The image or the voice of a person cannot be captured without his or her permission, except in cases of public events or when it is for informational purposes.

Consumers’ rights: Consumers are protected from false adverting. Dignified, equal and non-discriminatory treatment is enshrined in law.

New forms of contracts: Electronic contracts are considered valid. Contracting parties are given 10 days to analyze whether they want to keep their deal or to drop it.

Indigenous properties: Ancestral customs are respected without eroding the other citizen’s right to property. A complementary law will focus on the issue. Indigenous community groups have complained about the possibility of their properties being regulated in the new Civil and Commercial Code.

Environmental protection: Neither the sustainability of a region nor its landscape can be affected.

Australia crushed Argentina 34-9 in Mendoza yesterday, scoring four tries to earn a bonus point and set up a Rugby Championship decider against New Zealand.

The Wallabies, who lost to the Pumas at the same venue last year, were more penetrative in attack and stronger in defence, with the home side limited to three penalties from flyhalf Nicolás Sánchez.

Australia goes into the decider in Sydney in two weeks time equal on nine points with New Zealand after the All Blacks’ 27-20 victory over South Africa in Johannesburg.

Australia drew first blood with wing Joe Tomane’s 17th-minute try and went in 8-6 ahead at half-time.

They ran in a second try through replacement lock Dean Mumm just before... (Read More)

Jon and Arlene Malinski remember when a friend gave them a case of wine in the late 1990s to celebrate the sale of Jon’s Twin Cities office equipment business.

“We drank 11 of those 12 bottles with burgers and pizza,” said Arlene Malinski, Jon’s wife of 50 years. “Then someone said, ‘Do you know what you have here?’?”

“It was Latour ’86,” Jon said sheepishly, referring to the legendary French Bordeaux, which he later discovered sold for about $90 a bottle at the time. “Yes, things have changed.”

They changed the day the Excelsior couple, on vacation, walked into a struggling winery in the mountains of western Argentina... (Read More)

El Colegio Profesional de Corredores Públicos Inmobiliarios de Mendoza es una entidad de derecho público no estatal con jurisdicción en todo el territorio de la Provincia de Mendoza. Detenta el control de la matrícula y poder de policía que el Estado ha delegado en esta institución. La entidad persigue a las personas físicas o jurídicas que ejercen la actividad sin estar legalmente habilitadas y protege a quienes profesionalmente desarrollan la actividad de corredor público inmobiliario.

Este colegio profesional, entre sus objetivos, además de profundizar la persecución del corretaje ilegal y la profesionalización de sus matriculados mediante el dictado de  seminarios, cursos y reuniones con debates de alto grado académico, procurará crear el escenario necesario para la consolidación y proyección provincial y nacional de la institución. Según un estudio solicitado por el CCPIM a la consultora privada Evaluecon, los comparativos interanuales tomados de junio/2014 a junio/2015 arrojan estadísticas que nos invitan a un análisis:

Con 1.818.000 habitantes, Mendoza es la tercera provincia, después de la Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires y Provincia de Buenos Aires, en cantidad de bocas de supermercados. Según el estudio mensual que realiza el Indec, con la apertura de Coto el pasado 9 de julio, la provincia sumó 122 bocas. Mientras, según la fuente, el primer puesto es para la Ciudad de Buenos Aires con 718, seguida por la Provincia de Buenos Aires con 694 supermercados. Tercera queda Mendoza, superando a Córdoba y Santa Fe, provincias en las que residen más de 3 millones de personas.

En base al número de bocas de expendio, las firmas que se encuentran en la provincia son Carrefour, Walmart, Vea-Jumbo, Libertad, Átomo y ahora Coto. A éstas, además, hay que sumar los supermercados chinos y supermercados mayoristas.

Además, la atracción de Mendoza parecería ser fuerte, ya que este año se esperan nuevas inauguraciones. Walmart logró el visto bueno municipal para su segunda apertura en Guaymallén y quiere hacer lo propio en Las Heras. Carrefour no descarta nuevas aperturas. Tanto supermercado abierto y por abrir generó el descontento de la Federación Económica de Mendoza (FEM), entidad que emitió un comunicado insistiendo con la regulación de las grandes superficies comerciales para que no desaparezca el comercio minorista.

Dentro del informe del Indec otro dato que sobresale es que, sólo en marzo de 2015, se realizaron 3.828.135 operaciones en los supermercados de la provincia, lo que representa que en promedio un mendocino va un poco más de... (Read More)

Don Jacobo Enemark y su esposa llegaron por recomendación de su tío, un Capitán de barco también apellidado Enemark, cuyos viajes lo llevaban habitualmente al puerto de Valparaíso.

Tekla sufría de una afección pulmonar y el Capitán Enemark sugirió a su sobrino trasladarse a Mendoza. Una vez acá, Jacobo adquirió parte -aproximadamente veinte hectáreas- de la propiedad que originalmente perteneciera al Capitán Coria, quién con mano de obra indígena se dedicaba al cultivo de chacras.

Con el paso del tiempo y por diferentes razones, los Guldberg fueron perdiendo parte de la propiedad.  Ya fuera porque cedieron una parcela donde vivirían las... (Read More)
