Marriage affects your financial situation and benefits

Getting married will affect some practical things in your life. For example, if a child is born to a woman and a man who are married, there is no need to separately confirm who the child’s father is. Married spouses are also considered on another’s next of kin. Both have the right to receive information on each other’s state of health and participate in the decision-making process concerning their spouse’s treatment if the spouse cannot do so themselves.
