Kenya/Marriage to French Foreigner



Please advise me on the following:
I have been living with a French Citizen for about 6 years as man and wife. Back in France he is married and is in the process of a separation. Can we legalize our union here in Kenya? After the marriage act/bill here in Kenya, do you suppose we can be declared married?


 Hi Jean,
Should you try to declare that you are married your man risk being arrested because he is still married. Wait first until he is divorced and then you are proceeds with marriages. Kindly visit our website and see the requirements, before you are married , he must produces certificate of no impediment or certificate of divorce.
