"I do" the hardest words to say - in Luxembourg
Love may be in the air on Friday for Valentine's Day, but the same can't be said for Luxembourg during the rest of the year.
The Grand Duchy had the lowest marriage rate across Europe in 2018, latest figures from the European Union’s statistics office Eurostat show.
Only 3.1 people per 1,000 living in Luxembourg tied the knot. Cyprus had the highest rate, at 7.8, followed by Romania, Lithuania and Latvia.
But people living in Luxembourg, Italy and Portugal were the least tempted to say "I do".
Neighbouring countries France and Belgium were also below the EU average of 4.4 while Germany was above, at 4.9.
The ratio of people living in Luxembourg who get married has been steadily decreasing over the past three years.
