– In 2018, 45 455 marriages and 450 registrations of registered partnerships
took place in Austria, according to provisional figures of Statistics Austria.
Compared to 2017, the number of marriages slightly increased by 1.1%.
On the contrary, the number of registered partnerships decreased by
14.9%. The latter should, however, be seen against the background of
the legal admissibility of same-sex marriages in Austria starting from
1 January 2019.
Since 2015, data also include marriages and registrations
of partnerships by Austrian residents occurring abroad, which accounted
for 2 569 marriages (5.7%) and 41 registered partnerships (9.1%) in 2018.
