Some 198,332 couples got married in Ukraine from March to December of 2022, which is more than the same period during the previous year, the Ukrainian Ministry of Justice wrote on Facebook on Jan. 20.

The ministry told how the situation regarding the conclusion and dissolution of marriages in Ukraine changed in 2022, comparing it with the data for the previous year.

“War is not a time for love? Not true!” the ministry wrote in its post.

“Ukrainians prove the exact opposite! After all, in 2022, 198,332 couples in love got married in Ukraine (during March-December). And this is 7,654 more than in the same period of the previous year – in March-December 2021, 190,678 marriages were registered.”
