We had a whirlwind relationship: met briefly in early September 2007 (by briefly, I mean 10 seconds max!), started emailing the middle of that same month, changed to Skype at the end of October, I made my first visit to the Netherlands to spend a weekend with him the end of November, we got engaged March 2008 and married the following November! Most of my husband's friends have registered partners, but only one other Dutch couple in his circle of friends is married.I’m reading through the CNN travel report circa 2011 and wondering why the dutch don’t have a mention as one of the coolest nationalities in the world. Ditch the ill feelings towards the dutch guy who is rumoured to Go Dutch, when you are sitting at a table across from him, and slowly clearing your plate on a date. Forget about all those complaints and concerns on the cybersphere about dutch guys being uncool, unromantic and underdressed.
Dutch girls believe that feminism involves the following: When the Dutch marry, they’ll often marry during the week to keep the costs down and make it a small affair with close friends and family.
Here, even with 12-inch heels, I’m still quite average among dutch guys.
It’s a comforting feeling being around them, and not feeling self-conscious sticking out over everyone.
You will meet with this person some days before the ceremony.
In the Netherlands, you can choose to have your ceremony at a building specifically arranged for the purpose by the municipality, or have your ceremony at a location chosen by you and your partner, though this will cost extra.
