How can a person from Australia marry an American without meeting before getting married?
It sounds to me that it would be considered illegal, is one of them illegal, is there money exchanged? be careful.
American girls are free to marry whom they will. To marry a Syrian man, it would be necessary for the couple to be in the same place at the same time, so first you would have to decide where you both want to be. Given the current civil war in Syria, you are probably better off meeting in America and getting married there.
With over 250 languages in Australia, the indigenous people of Australia have different words for "meeting place". However, the name of Australia's capital, Canberra, is said to be derived from the aboriginal word for "meeting place". Some sources state that "Uluru" is also a word meaning "meeting place".
Australia is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations. Your question really might be better, why is Australia a Commonwealth nation. CHOGM means Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting. This meeting happens every two years. So CHOGM is a gathering of national heads and this year will take place in Perth, Australia.
The American Declaration of the Rights & Duties of Man was adopted at the Ninth International Conference of American States in Bogota, Columbia in April of 1948. The meeting was the same meeting that adopted the Charter of the Organization of American States, which created the OAS. This document was the world's first international human rights instrument of a general nature, and it was adopted by the nations of the Americas.
