In spite of the coronavirus scourge hitting the country, this did not prevent people from tying the knot.

According to the statistics issued by the Ministry of Justice, it has registered 350 marriage contracts within 42 days.

The statistics stated 262 marriage contracts were ratified from March 15 to April 22 last, in addition to issuing 88 marriage permits by the ‘authorized persons’ outside the Department of Legal Documentation.

However, the statistics does not include the number of divorces, not because they did not exist during this crisis, but because the ministry informed those who wish to separate that most of the staff working in this department are on leave and must wait until the epidemic ends.
