I want to get married
You want to get married, romantically! A lawyer will help you arrange everything as best as possible.
If you and your partner want to get married, it is important to inform yourself well about the legal consequences of marriage. Not very romantic, but marriage also entails a number of rights and obligations. For instance, you owe each other loyalty, you can inherit from each other and the assets you acquire and already owned at the time of marriage acquire a certain status. That status is important if the marriage does end up on the rocks (although we hope not, of course) or one of you dies (rather late than early). A lot depends there on the choice of a particular matrimonial system and a lawyer can help with that.
