Vienna, 2019-02-25 – 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.
