There is also my brother, who had "issues" as a child. My mother says that she distinctly remembers me storming into the house after babysitting the neighbors' kids and announcing angrily, "I'm never getting married and I'm never having kids."Only once has my decision not to have children wavered ever-so-slightly, but know it wasn't one babysitting incident gone awry that has kept me fairly steadfast in my resolve.Those living together en concubinage have some of the same privileges in law as married couples, including social security.To qualify for these, you may need to obtain a (free) certificate from your town hall testifying that you’re living together ‘as man and wife’ (take identification, proof of address and two witnesses), although town halls aren’t obliged to issue them, in which case you can both sign a ‘sworn declaration’ ( attestation sur l’honneur) that you live together.The legal age of consent in France is 18; girls aged between 15 and 18 can be married with the consent of at least one parent, but the government is planning to abolish this concession.Non-French citizens are entitled to be married in France, but divorcees and widows must wait 300 days after their divorce or the death of their spouse before being allowed to remarry (in case of pregnancy).France is the source of many grape varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot noir, Sauvignon blanc, Syrah) that are now planted throughout the world, as well as wine-making practices and styles of wine that have been adopted in other producing countries.Although some producers have benefited in recent years from rising prices and increased demand for some of the prestige wines from Burgundy and Bordeaux, the French wine industry as a whole has been influenced by a decline in domestic consumption, while internationally, it has had to compete with the increased success of many new world wines.

My next brush with marriage occurred in my mid-20s, with my Brazilian boyfriend. A few months later, the subject of a real marriage—and kids—came up."I want six," he said.
I wanted none but told him I'd compromise on two if we could have a nanny raise them."Ok," he said, "but we have to raise them Catholic." This mortified me."I'm Jewish, so by Jewish law, my children are Jewish too. Anyway, you don't even practice your religion.""But my mother will insist that they be raised Catholic." Needless to say, I didn't marry Marcelo—or have his children.
It’s estimated that 40 to 50 per cent of couples who get married have already cohabited for up to two years.
Many couples don’t bother to get married and simply live together, but French law distinguishes between partners living together ‘unofficially’ ( en union libre) and ‘officially’ ( en concubinage).
