Age restrictions

In order to get married in France:

You must both be over 18 and free to marry (single, widowed or divorced) 

These days more and more english people are moving to France permanently or part of each year.

The UK Government statistics show that just over thirty-five per cent of marriages break down. The French figures are almost the same : one half in the province, two thirds in Paris.

If you are both living in France, or if the children are living here with either mother or father or if the respondent is living in France, you can apply for a divorce here no matter if you where born or got married abroad.
