Year after year, I see that more and more couples are choosing February 14, Valentine’s Day, to get married. The symbolism is strong, but it must not obscure the fact that for the future spouses, there are certain formalities relating to civil marriage, particularly in regard to the publication of marriage.
The deadline for the publication of marriage
According to law, solemnization of a marriage can only take place 21 days after the date of publication of the banns. Publication of the banns is publication of a notice of marriage. This notice of marriage must be posted at the Register of notices of marriage and civil union with the Directeur de l’état civil du Québec. If the spouses have been in a civil union, no publication is required, the marriage can be celebrated without delay.
