The three types of connections between a religious marriage and a civil marriage

1. Religious marriage (introduced in the Concordat of 1929 and confirmed in 1984 with some modifications), that is, canonical marriage of which the State recognises the civil effects, for the most part including the decisions of annulment made by ecclesiastic courts.
2. Religious marriage according to the rites of religions that have an agreement under article 8§3 of the Constitution. In this case, the source is the law on the approval of agreements and the mechanism is that of the religious marriage, but the jurisdiction of religious courts is not recognised.
3. Religious marriage according to law No. 1159 of 24 June 1929 which, through a system of double authorisation of the minister of religion, permits recognised religious denominations to celebrate marriages for which the State agrees to recognise the civil effects.
