Spouse of b permit holder

Hi all, I'm new to this forum.
I've been searching for the answer but it seems that there are not so many cases match my situation.
I'm non EU, my fiancÚ is EU citizen(Hungarian) and has been working in Switzerland for 4 years. He is a b permit holder. We plan to get married soon in Hungary.
A friend of mine just told us that we should register in Switzerland instead of in Hungary, in that case, when I get my b permit, that will allow me to work.
As I understood, no matter where I register, once we're married, I can apply for a dependent b permit which would too allow me to find a job.
I read some articles and some said they did have permits that only allowed them to accompany their spouses while some said they could work.
Could anyone please tell me, in my case, how it would be?
Thank you very much in advance!

Re: Spouse of b permit holder

It's not necessary to have your marriage recognised here, but it also won't hurt to do so. Your fiance needs to contact his local civil register office to find out what needs to be done.

"If you and your future spouse are both foreign nationals

You must contact the register office for foreign nationals in your future canton of residence. It is responsible for the marriage recognition procedure."

https://www.ch.ch/en/wedding-abroad/

If your husband has a B permit then you'll get the same and you can work. However, should you divorce later down the line you'd lose that dependent permit and any employer would have to go through the non-EU hiring process to apply for a new permit for you - which they may not be willing to do.

L permits which many non-EU nationals get for their employment do not allow their spouses to work without authoritisation from the Swiss authorities.
