Marriages in New Eiffel were not governmentally preformed nor recognised in any legal sense. Formerly, it was available only to opposite-sex couples and was legally recognised in the forms of both civil and religious marriage. Same-sex marriages were unrecognised, however overseas same-sex couples received de facto governmental recognition. There was a distinction between religious marriages, conducted by an authorised religious celebrant and civil marriages conducted by a registrar. The legal minimum age to enter into a marriage in New Eiffel was eighteen years (twenty-one without parental consent), the same age as the age of consent. Marriages stopped being performed in December 2019, at which point no legal marriages had ever been recorded. Proposals to reintroduce marriage and allow same-sex marriages to be performed were never implemented due to the crisis in New Eiffel.
