Reader feedback: Thanks for the pre-proposal advice

Thanks for the advice - from someone who is planning such an adventure but has not yet popped the question ["Foreign Affairs: From matrika to Senzus" by Tom Nicholson, Vol. 7 No. 46, December 3 -9]. I remember a similar article that the Spectator featured a number of months ago. Would it be possible to send me it by e-mail? I know you are not marriage counsellors, but do you know if it is possible for a foreigner and a Slovak partner to complete the necessary information and documentation if the foreigner is not in Slovakia at the time, but they plan to get married there? Also, did you know that during a Slovak wedding the priest/minister/other never asks whether someone objects to the couple being married? Is this true, or simply propaganda? Is there also a form requiring both parties to the marriage to obtain the signatures of all previous boyfriends, girlfriends, mistresses etc. guaranteeing that there are no impediments (with necessary DNA and blood checks of any children, of course)?
