You can do just about anything with blockchain technology these days, and it is now being used to record a lot of different kinds of data. This does not have to be financial either, and distributed ledgers can be used to record all kinds of data. One of the newest examples is to record marriages.
Blockchain technology is having a massive impact on businesses and our society, albeit in different ways. In the future, it is likely that we will begin to see more and more marriages being recorded on this technology. A majority of marriage laws have not been changed in a long, long time, so this technology comes at a great time. For anyone that has been married, or is planning a wedding will know that there is an awful lot of requirements that you must meet, depending of course on where you are in the world. Using blockchain technology to record these will ensure that they are all kept in one place where they can be accessed.
So how would this work? Blockchain technology would allow a huge and transparent global marriage registry to open up great opportunities in the future. It will provide a permanent record of couples’ intentions, regardless of any international boundaries they might face. It offers protection and will transform the concept of marriage completely.
Experts believe that it is only a matter of time until blockchain technology is used in this industry, but feel that it will be only be for the best. It will not change marriage and how it works, but it will introduce some positive administration changes. More opportunities will open up, particularly when it comes to same sex marriages and polyamorous relationships, which can only be a good thing.
