: According to the Belgium Constitution a member

: So I would say no.
: There is one 'however': I don't know how
: 'the King' should be read in the Belgium
: Constitution. In the Dutch Constitution the
: term 'The King' should in some cases be
: translated in 'the government'. If the same

: government had to approve of the marriage
: and they will probably only give that
: consent after approval of the parliament.
