The length of time married couples legally have to wait to get divorced in Ireland could be cut.
The Justice Minister, Charlie Flanagan, is looking at reducing it from four years to two - or no wait time at all.
If the proposal progresses, the change in law would have to go to a referendum.
This morning, Cabinet Ministers discussed a number of options for how any vote on divorce waiting times would be worded.
They included reducing the waiting period from 4 years to 2, or removing it altogether.
The Justice Minister is going to consult with the opposition this week on what they would support, and hopes to bring a formal memo to cabinet in January.
Ministers hope the referendum on divorce could take place in May, alongside the local and European elections.
A number of other votes may take place then, including questions on a woman's place in the home and allowing Irish citizens living abroad vote in Presidential elections.
