[quote=CHRISTINE,387301]Dear all, For those who have questions about Chinese marriage registration, please read this article. Hope it can be helpful to you. Title: Marriage Registration in China Content: Introduction International marriages are increasingly common: marriages between foreigners and Chinese citizens are no exception. The laws and procedures for an international marriage are those of the country you are marrying in, and in most situations there is no need to marry in both as a marriage in one country is normally recognised in all others. However, there are a few issues such as the minimum age a person may marry and the possibility of having multiple spouses in some cultures which can cause a marriage to be invalid elsewhere. You should also remember that even though your country recognises your overseas marriage, it typically does not provide an automatic right for your spouse to enter your country: that is normally subject to a separate application and far from certain to be approved. In the same way a foreigner has no automatic right to live in China because he or she has married a Chinese. This article will explain the basic rules that foreigners need to know about marrying in China and also consider some related topics such as some of the customs associated with marriage in China. Administration of Marriage Administration of marriages is handled by municipal Civil Affairs Bureau (Minzheng Ju 民政局). Normally, you will have to go to the office in the jurisdiction in which the Chinese partner is registered on her or his hukou (户口) though there are a few reports that couples have been able to marry in an office local to where the Chinese partner is living. It is in the nature of the Chinese system that there can be such variations in the implementation of the rules, so it is always worth checking on procedures when you visit to collect an application form. The persons marrying must be of marriageable age: for men that is 22 years and for women 20 years old, except that persons may marry younger with parental permission. Persons must not be married to another person at the time of marriage: having more than one husband or wife in any country is not permitted under Chinese law. Marriages can only be between a male and a female, not two persons of the same gender.[/quote]
