The Marriage Register – background

Since 1 October 2011, the Marriage Register has been held by the Swedish Tax Agency, which is also responsible for entering information in the register concerning, for example, divorces, marriage contracts, gifts between spouses, notifications of
division of joint property and division of joint property documents. The information is obtained from courts and private individuals.

The Marriage Register was previously held by Statistics Sweden (SCB) in Örebro. It was established in 1921 in conjunction with a reform to the marriage legislation and the adoption of a new marriage code. Statistics Sweden then became the registration authority for information that, in accordance with the law, must be reported to the Marriage Register. Due to legislative changes, the content of the Marriage Register has varied over the years, as follows:
