Re: Disadvantages of Marriage in Switzerland

To clarify:
Swiss person comes on English forum to ask if Switzerland gives out stuff when you get married.


In response:
It is Switzerland - you pay for everything*








*Except for advice on EF, which is worth twice the cost

Re: Disadvantages of Marriage in Switzerland

Don't forget the 'punished for being married' taxes, sad but true.

Rubbish, there's a lot more to it than just the "Swiss system", arguing, bickering, money whatever
You might be right. I was only reporting what she told me. She said that there were things in the Swiss system that favoured him because he was Swiss and allowed the divorce to go on forever. She did say that the UK system was not like that (whatever that was).

She was very clear that she wished she had never been married in Switzerland for a number of reasons and was adamant (and insisted other countries were not like here). Her intense feelings suggested it was not a system she appreciated.

Well, for one, I hope that he teaches you a bit more English. To say, 'any more bright ideas', when someone offered you some advise, is down right rude.

Oh the irony!
It's called "Prosaic justice".

@sam ali
'any more bright ideas' is emotionally neutral. Depending on delivery, it could quite possibly be an expression of gratitude for the suggestions given thus far. Perhaps you should meet the OP's intended, and he could teach you how to improve your English?
