For the first time the concept "civil marriage" appeared in Holland in the Middle Ages. The church at that time did not recognize the unions of people of different religions. In this regard the civil marriage, in other words, secular, arose as an alternative to church marriage. The city administration registered the relations which are not consecrated with church.
Strictly speaking, any marriage, the prisoner in the REGISTRY OFFICE is civil. Cohabitation of couple without officially processed documents on legal language is called "the actual marriage", and on the police officer – "cohabitation". Today often operate with a concept of a civil marriage at the description of cohabitation of people without official registration. Such relations are widespread. On household understanding the civil marriage is a usual marriage, but without stamp in the passport. People in such marriage call each other husbandby and wife, conduct the general economy, bring the general children, have the general budget. Why they do not hurry to make out the relations? The reasons can be much. There is no money for a beautiful wedding Lovers it seems and not against to register the relations, but they want to make it with noise, limousines and one hundred guests. While there is no material opportunity, decide to live together and to save up for a wedding. There is no confidence in the feelings Too serious and reverent attitude to marriage and future children raises a set of doubts in correctness of the choice of the partner. The decision to live some time together and to check the feelings seems in this case to the most reasonable. There is no desire to cast in the lot with the partner for a long time In this case one of partners consciously does not want to undertake family obligations and often behaves as the free person. And stand another as loves or depends on the partner financially or psychologically and is afraid to lose him. There is no need Sometimes people at whom behind the back of many years lived together, do not hurry in the REGISTRY OFFICE. They have children, accurate rules of joint life are developed, material and everyday issues are resolved. Such couple does not see sense in registration of the relations which are checked by time long ago. And it is valid why all these stamps? Perhaps, registration of marriage became obsolete the same as to give old custom for the bride given? Not everything is so simple. The fact is that, despite escalating popularity of a civil marriage, it has serious minuses. Your, my, the nasheotsutstviye of the accurate legal framework, perhaps, raises the greatest doubts at civil spouses in correctness of the made decision. When couple lives together, questions of the one who buys a sofa, and who pays on the credit for the car, are solved easily and amicably. But at break in relations the sharing of the property acquired in the course of joint life is capable to spoil nerves strongly. And at times and forever to deprive of belief in good and justice. To divide spoons, a cat, furniture and the apartment fairly seldom it is possible. The court if it is reached by business, makes the decision in favor of that partner who can prove the property right. If the car is registered on the common-law wife, then it has it and will remain. The fact that the spouse bought it on the honestly earned award, alas, will not play a role. To leave or ostatsyanikaky the stamp in the passport is not capable to keep the failed relations. However stains among couples living in a civil marriage happen much more often than among official spouses. Whatever one may do, but at the subconscious level many couples consider the relations frivolous. The civil marriage in that case is a marriage "for fun". When bothered to play the husband and the wife, it is possible to pack fast things and to say goodbye. Here only often happens that one perceives in what another put heart and soul as a game. It is possible to treat a civil marriage differently. Some see in marriage without wedding libertinism and a way to evade responsibility. For others is an opportunity to avoid mistakes and a way to keep for a long time feeling of freedom. But how two, the main thing – not in the name, and in love and mutual respect called the relations.
