Getting married without a single status document can be challenging, as most countries require proof that you are not currently married to another person. This document is often called a "Certificate of No Impediment," "Certificate of Freedom to Marry," or something similar. It serves as evidence that you are legally eligible to marry.
It is a sad reality that if you are same sex or mixed religion in countries where it is unfortunately not legal to be in one of these types of relationships obtaining a single status certificate is not possible and could actually be life threatening to obtain.
Or if you need to marry in a hurry perhaps due to a company relocation, illness or pregnancy, you simply do not have the time to obtain a single status certificate or certificate of non impediment which in some cases can take upwards of 6 months.
And in some countries which demand Single status certificates to be less than 4 months old, if a document takes 6 months to arrive this creates a horrific documents loop which you cannot get out of.
When you are getting married there is so much to think about, your life long commitment to someone else for one :) But in addition there is also lots of documentation to registering, de-registering, re-registering and name changes! And all of this can take so much time, so we specifically work with 2 locations that require the least amount of paperwork, as a wedding should be fun and allow you to focus on each other and your futures - so the less documents the better to allow you to do this.
