Ie dating and marriage
Women are more likely to want to “go Dutch”, with 68% saying they do the latter and only one in ten women offering to pay for the whole thing.It’s a good thing we have the issue of paying out of the way – that at least gives us one less thing to worry about on an actual date. Dating in other countries is wildly different to dating in Ireland.Under EU Regulation 2201/2003 (“the Brussels II bis”) it is the spouse’s habitual residence that determines a court’s right to grant a divorce.Where the divorce comes within EU regulations, it is sufficient to confirm that both parties to the divorce were notified of the proceedings and had an opportunity to give evidence to the court which granted the divorce.
This also applies if your marriage ends due to a divorce rather than a death.
If the General Registrar is of the opinion that the foreign divorce is valid, then the new marriage can go ahead.
If not, you can provide additional information to prove validity or else you can apply for a hearing before the Circuit Court.
Under the Domicile and Recognition of Foreign Divorces Act 1986, a foreign divorce will only be recognised in Ireland if at least one spouse was in the state that granted the divorce when the proceedings started.
You may have to provide good evidence that this was the case and, therefore, that the divorce is valid under Irish law.
