Greece has lowest share of births out of wedlock, but weddings decrease

Greece had the lowest share of births out of wedlock in the European Union in 2018, according to the EU statistics agency Eurostat.

At 11.1%, it occupies the last place in the relevant list, with the next country with the lowest percentage being Cyprus at 20.3%.

The data also suggests that the institution of marriage is gradually losing its relevance in certain parts of the bloc.

Greece is no exception, according to the ELSTAT national statistic agency, which showed that in 2018 marriages amounted to 47,428 (24,418 religious and 23,010 civil) showing a decrease of 5.4% compared to 2017.

Heartbreak for family of Scots mum found dead in Greece as police probe grinds to a halt despite 'unanswered questions'
The family of Jean Hanlon still have several unanswered questions about the 'suspicious' circumstances surrounding her death in a Greek harbour in 2009 but have been told that the investigation has been stopped.

The body of Jean Hanlon, originally from Dumfries, was found in a Crete harbour just four days after she sent a text message saying “help me” to a friend in 2009.

Greek police initially dismissed the 53-year-old’s death as an accidental drowning despite her suffering shattered ribs, a punctured lung and severe facial wounds.

Bystanders catch brothers who jump to safety from burning apartment block

A boy and his toddler brother escaped from a burning building by jumping 33 feet (10m) from a window before being caught by members of the public.

Footage shows the two brothers - aged 10 and three - leap from at least three stories high as their apartment billowed with black smoke and flames. As onlookers screamed, the older brother hung out of the apartment window and then let himself fall into the arms of people gathered below.

French media said the two brothers were unharmed by the fall but might have suffered smoke inhalation.
