Marriage is something that regardless of gender and religion, is a dream for many people, and the realization of that dream has its protocols in religion as in civil in any country and in Cape Verde is no different. Even though marriages are rare in Cape Verde, most Catholics. Those who intend to marry must declare it, personally or through an attorney (by the groom and attorney), at a registry office or Civil Registry delegation and requires the initiation of the marriage process. Only one of the Nuptials (fiancé, related words, married, contractor, godmother) can be represented by a proxy.
Those who can apply in Cape Verde are the bride and groom, interested-single citizens over 18 and who do not present any psychic anomaly or notorious dementia; Attorney. The wedding can be held at any civil registry office.
