1. Legal aspects
In the UAE, it is necessary for a couple to get married to receive the legal benefits available for a spouse and kids. In the UAE, couples need to register their marriage in Sharia court. If the nationalities of partners are different or if any of the partners is not born in the UAE, then it can increase paperwork. In some cases, the marriage registration becomes a bit complicated in UAE for cross-nationality couples.
Denmark has flexible civil marriage laws, even for foreign couples and cross-nationality couples. The paperwork is pretty straightforward for foreign couples that choose to get married in Denmark. The couple can Apostille their marriage certificate to use it in their country.
