Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.

Sorry to have to inform you, but no, online marriage is not allowed.

Marriage is a very serious commitment, that requires, planing, applications, and attendance in person with witnesses.

It is not the same as online dating and social media chat.

Thank you. Because of all the covid lockdown we are being trying to get married for 1 and 6 months. Our wedding was suppose to be May last year but because of the pandemic it was cancelled. Now there is an online marriage service based in Uter in America that claim it can be done via them and apostle so it will be legal. We have lived together for 2 years, so this is not on line dating or chat.

That may be so in the USA but not where you were asking about.

Can I assist or clarify anything further?
