France and dating and marrige

Families tend to have few children, but parents take their role as guardians and providers very seriously. In this culture marriage signifies a sacred communion of two souls and a new beginning of a long-lasting relationship between loved ones and their extended families. And who doesn’t know that French men embrace style, sophistication, elegance, and a storied appreciation of fine cuisine?

Work and vacation, fun and hard work, and family and career are usually all completely balanced in their lives.

It’s typical for him to call a woman the first day he meets her and send endless text messages.

It’s estimated that 40 to 50 per cent of couples who get married have already cohabited for up to two years.

I got married to a French man as I found him open-hearted, fascinating and gentle.

I decided to get married to a foreigner to find out new horizons, so too as my husband wished to leave France to get married to an American woman, but the destiny solved it differently: he was been tempted by remarkable Slavic appeal!!

Many couples don’t bother to get married and simply live together, but French law distinguishes between partners living together ‘unofficially’ ( en union libre) and ‘officially’ ( en concubinage).

Those living together en concubinage have some of the same privileges in law as married couples, including social security.

Most of the country has cool winters and mild summers, while the Mediterranean region has mild winters and hot summers.
