      India

    • C.

      Philippines

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    A. Greece
    Explanation
    Greece is the correct answer because it does not provide its residents with the right to divorce.

Instead, Switzerland has adopted a no-fault divorce system, where couples can simply state that their marriage has irretrievably broken down. This change reflects a shift towards more modern and progressive divorce laws, focusing on the dissolution of the marriage rather than assigning blame to one party.
