US Citizen - Marriage to B Permit EU ASAP

Hi everyone! I am from the USA and have been working in Germany as an engineer since the middle of last year (my first job). I have been dating my boyfriend for over 5 years and we are trying to find a solution to finally end this long distance relationship and move to the same city. I have always been living nearby in Europe in different places the past few years (for studying, working, etc.) and it is getting a little bit annoying because we already know we want to get married, we just donít know when/how.

He is from Germany but has been living in Zurich the past four years for his PhD in engineering. He has a B Permit, will graduate in a few months, and we want to evaluate whether we should live in Germany or Switzerland. I already learned, while trying to apply for jobs in Switzerland as a new graduate, that I could not get a visa to get a job as a non-EU person without marriage. Thatís why I landed in Germany.

We are looking to ďmake it officialĒ as fast as possible, so that I at least have the opportunity to get a permit and search for a job in Switzerland. It would be a lot for me to leave my very comfortable job in Germany (unlimited contract, great entry-level pay).

To make a long story short, we were looking into marrying in Denmark (the Las Vegas of Europe) but we know that the Swiss authorities donít automatically accept this paperwork like many EU countries do. Any suggestions?

If neither of you is Swiss, there is nothing for the Swiss authorities to accept or not.

Get married in Switzerland? Get married in Germany?

Get married in Denmark and look that all formalities are fulfilled:

Get married in the real Las Vegas and look that all formalities are fulfilled:
