Marriage Regulation in Spain. Current Situation and Challenges [PDF]

Dr. Carmen Garcimartín

Marriage has changed profoundly during years. The current definition of marriage in Spanish law has abandoned the pattern of a stable union of a man and a woman aimed to raise the next generation. Several problems arise from this departure; the most important ones are figuring out which are the constitutive elements of marriage according to the laws in force, and trying to build a consistent regulation of this relationship. The article includes a general overview of the history and the current regulation of marriage, and subsequently explores the main challenges to the regulation of marriage in the near future.

Keywords: marriage in Spain, family law.
