The author examines the law promulgated in Greece on april the 14th 1982 concerning the introduction of civil marriage. Since then, the marriage law points the difference between the law of civil marriage and the law of religious marriage. After an analysis of the compatibility existing between civil marriage and its celebration according to the various recognized religions in Greece, the A. enters upon the central point of his contribution: the making of the law of marriage within the juridical framework of the Orthodox Church. He starts with the following statement: as long as the legislature had the charge of ecclesiastical matters it acted within a Church-State relationship framework, such as it had been shaped by the modern Greek State. Thefore its deeds included also the law of the Church. But as soon as the law of the Sate detaches itself from the law of the Church... the legislative activity of the Sate doesn't reach any longer the field it has set free, in order to be ruled by the law of the Church.
