Spain dating customs
Same sex couples now have the same rights as hetrosexual couples and such ceremonies are now very popular in Spain.
It is common for couples to have a civil ceremony in the UK then a more informal blessing in Spain, usually set within wonderful surroundings, with all the trimmings to their exact requirements.
Spanish traditions, customs, celebrations and other cultural activities are unique to the Spanish society.
Additionally, Spain is known for its hospitality and relaxed way of life; and this is what students and visitors love about Spain and the Spanish culture.
My first reaction was, “Wow, that was fast,” especially as they live in Sevilla and it meant taking a trip out there just for the occasion. Family is more important here than it can be in the US.
Given the size of Europe and the many different countries that exist within its borders, the dating customs from country to country vary.
Civil and religious (Roman Catholic, Protestant, Jewish and Muslim) marriages can be celebrated in Spain for people over 18.
While Spanish law appears to permit foreigners to marry in Spain, in practice it will usually be necessary for one of the couple to have been legally resident in Spain for at least two years.
The first step is for the couple to register their intentions at the local registry office.
This notice of intention is then published for 15 days.
