Getting married in France

Getting married around the clock

, Comments 0 comments

The town of Roermond in the southern Dutch province of Limburg has plans to make it possible to get married there 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

If the council approves the scheme Roermond will become the only place in the Netherlands where this is possible. The idea is a reaction to the large number of requests from people wishing to get married on 10 October this year, in other words on 10-10-10.

The major cities incidentally allow couples to get married during the night, while some towns have been offering civil ceremonies on Sundays for quite some time now.

However, conservative Christian communities like Nunspeet and Staphorst will probably never allow marriage ceremonies on Sundays.
