The number of marriages in Uzhgorod is decreasing
According to the chief specialist of the state service for registration of civil status acts in the city of Uzhgorod Olga Ryabinicheva, in May, they registered only 21 marriages. In other months, the figure reaches 40-50.
Olga Ryabinicheva says that not only May is characterized by low number of marriages, but almost all of the past six months. She believes that one of the reason is the demographic crisis in the 90s, as those born in 1992 have reached the age of consent now. "We have low number of couples, as well as students in higher education," - the chief specialist says.
Meanwhile, "Novyny Zakarpattya" found another reason - Uzhgorod couples register marriages in neighboring to the regional center villages of Uzhgorod district. In particular, in Kamyanytsa. They explain that it is cheaper there and the ceremony is more interesting.
