In 2006, 9,778 weddings were held between residents of the A.C. of the
Basque Country of different sexes, 423 less than the previous year,
according to Eustat data. Over recent years, the number of civil weddings
has increased, going from representing 23.3% in 1990 to 48.2% in 2006, when
they rose to 4,714. There were 5,058 Catholic weddings and 6 corresponded to
other religious faiths.

By province in 2006, civil weddings had the greatest weight in Gipuzkoa
(50.1%), followed by Alava and Bizkaia (both with 49.4%). The percentage of
civil weddings between residents of the A.C. of the Basque Country fell to
30.7% when they took place outside our Community.

The Basque marriage rate (4.4 weddings per thousand inhabitants) is slightly
below that of the countries of the European Union as a whole and the Spanish
rate (4.8%o in both cases). July, with 1,605 weddings, occupied the first
position as the favourite month to get married, followed by September with
1,565 and June with 1,357.

As regards the previous marital status of the couples, 92.3% of men had been
single, a figure similar to the 92.5% of single women.

The average age of couples has increased by over five years since 1986

Parallel to the increased maternity age, there has been an increase in the
age of couples getting married. In 2006, the average age of single men
getting married was 32.7 and 30.7 for single women. Since 1986, the average
age of grooms has risen by 5.3 years and 5.8 in the case of brides.

The favourite destinations for the 551 couples who made their residence
outside the A.C. of the Basque Country after getting married were Cantabria
and Madrid. There were differences, as regards the destination, between the
couples who were married in the three provinces: those from Alava went
preferably to Madrid, La Rioja and Castile and Leon; those from Bizkaia to
Cantabria and Madrid and those from Gipuzkoa to overseas countries and
Navarre.

As regards the geographical origin of the couples, 79% of the weddings were
held between residents of the same municipality of the Community and 6.6%
resided in neighbouring municipalities.

169 homosexual weddings took place in 2006

Elsewhere, of the 169 weddings held between people of the same sex, 15 took
place in Alava, 83 in Bizkaia, 61 in Gipuzkoa and 10 outside the A.C. of the
Basque Country. Of these, 100 were weddings between men and 69 between
women.
