I’m a single guy and just arrived in Luxembourg for an assignment. I have no idea of what Luxembourg people are like culturally and how I would go about striking up friendships with women. The people seem friendly enough - too friendly almost - and speak loads of languages and I cannot cut through the banter somehow.

I noticed that calculating the salary gives different results based on either married/partnership or single. Me and my girlfriend were thinking of registering our partnership but are wondering after how much time after registration will the tax get lower? Thanks

Dear Ipek,
I'm EU citizen living and working in Luxembourg. I have been in a relationship with a Ukrainian girl for one year and we now consider living together here. My girlfriend still lives in Ukraine for the moment.
If she comes in Luxembourg with a short-term visa, would we be allowed to get a PACS and then ask for "regroupement familial"?
Thank you.

Dear Ipek Akalin, I am a Brazilian/Luxembourgian citizen living in Brazil with my Brazilian husband. We decided to sell our company, apt, car, everything and move to Luxembourg for sake. The problem is that I have been dis-encouraged as I wont be able to rent a place as I don't have a job contract. Is that right? Our idea was living on our savings plus my husband's job contract with a huge industry in Brazil at the beginning. Is it impossible to rent without a job contract? Thank you.

Hi Ipek,
Appreciate this might not be your line of expertise, but can you briefly summarize what living with a girlfriend in Luxembourg legally/financially mean? Is there a similar concept to common law defacto marriage in Luxembourg? i.e. if I live with a girlfriend without legally being be in marriage or relationship through PACS are we deemed to be married after a period of time with same rights and obligations as marriage or PACS? Thank you.
