Wedding to go on 2/22/22

Already married today? If not, particularly spontaneous couples with a preference for Schnaps numbers can still do that in northern Germany today – under certain conditions.

Flensburg/Lübeck – Wedding to go on February 22, 2022: On the Schnapszahl date, churches in the north invited newly married couples and couples of many years to spontaneously get married or be blessed in a church.

While in Lübeck and Basthorst the wedding took place in the afternoon, couples in Flensburg were able to receive their blessings in the morning. It was enough to bring the civil certificate with you. The rest was briefly discussed personally on site. And festive music was also provided.

Five couples had made an appointment in advance after hearing about the possibility. “Actually, it wasn’t even intended with registration, but really as a spontaneous marriage,” said Flensburg city pastor Johannes Ahrens. But then there were also requests for a fixed date, which were fulfilled. “But there is still the possibility of coming here spontaneously.” The latter was made by a couple from Flensburg-Weiche, who have been legally married for five years and only in the morning at 5.45 a.m. by the groom’s mother via Whatsapp about the campaign was informed. dpa
