Marriage will give freedom of choice
The government proposes to allow to marry at any time.
Citizens want to allow to choose the date and time of the marriage. So the government intends to get rid of the “corruption” of the current system of registration of marriages because of the “considerable number of citizens wishing to marry in those or other significant date, but not having the opportunity to apply for the marriage in the appropriate date”. In addition, officials say, the impossibility to adjust the workload of the Registrar within the existing system.
The government submitted to the state Duma amendments to the legislation, allowing citizens to choose the time and date of registration of marriage. Today that opportunity in the legal acts is not fixed. The need for change is explained by the fact that today “marriage registration is made after one month from the date of application” that “leads to the inability to manage the workload of the Registrar, and to the impossibility for citizens entering into a marriage that is convenient for them to choose the time and date of the state registration of marriage.”
The authors also talk about the “corruption” of the current system of registration of marriages because of the “considerable number of citizens wishing to marry in those or other significant date, but not having the opportunity to apply for the marriage in the appropriate date”.
It is assumed that the date and time can be selected from the available intervals “defined by the selected body the registry office in the Federal state information system of the Unified state register of records of acts of civil status (FGIS “usr Registrar”.— “Kommersant”)”, but not earlier than one month from the date of filing of application about marriage. The document States that marriage registration is made within a year from the date of submission of the application. In addition, “the date and time of state registration of marriage in the future can’t be changed”, reads the document.
