Laws In Germany?


Recommended Posts


is there anyone who knows more about the laws in Germany? As far as I know, it is not allowed to officiate marriages. But I would like to know more. For example, whether it is legal to name oneself "Reverent" or "Pastor". ... etc.

Thank you so far

Best regards

it's been a long time since i was in germany,and the laws are different now than they were then.i would advise you contact a ulc minister there and ask them.i know that religious titles were allowed under law(revrend,rabbi,iman,father)but when it came to titles such as doctor,that was an entirely different story.

If I am not mistaken, to be legally wed in Germany you only have to have a civil marriage done by government officials. The religious wedding ceremony is separate and is not considered to be the legal one, but is just done for ceremonial/religious purposes.
