Family involement necessary?

If a foreigner wants to get maried to a local, is it a requirement for the local’s family to be involved in any way ?

Apologies … Perhaps I should have made clear why I’m asking the above question. I read this article by Bu Lai En and I quote …

… which made me wonder if it’s compulsary for family to be involved. Well, is it ?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Nope. My wife and I were the only ones involved.

You need witnesses to sign the marriage certificate, but they don’t need to be family.


Thank you.

How about the household registry…Doesn’t her father hold that document?
