Can diplomatic and consular officials perform marriages for Americans abroad? Is this marriage valid? Do couples have to re-marry in the US to make their marriage valid?

I do believe that certain officials in the US emb*y can officiate marriage ceremonies of US citizens who are abroad. They, however, need to set-up an appointment with the consular office or emb*y abroad. Any ceremonies conducted in the emb*y are valid since the emb*y is considered as a US Territory.

I don't think so. As a rule, marriages are not to be performed on the premises of an American emb*y or consulate and as for you to know, American diplomatic and consular officers are NOT permitted to perform marriages. The validity of marriages abroad is not dependent upon the presence of an American diplomatic or consular officer, but upon adherence to the laws of the country where the marriage is performed.

What would you do if you just recently found out that your marriage was fake? Who to blame and to whom you should ask for a help?
