Less European People Are Getting Married

May 24 2024 Share

The number of marriages in the European Union has taken a dip in recent years according to Eurostat demographics.

The peak number of marriages came in 2007 when on average there was 5 marriages per 1,000 people in the EU. The number has dipped in recent years as two years ago in 2022 the whole European Union average sat at 4.2 marriages per 1000 people.

The number of marriages is also decreasing in Malta but is still higher than the 2022 European average as there 4.8 marriages per 1000 Maltese people.  The peak numbers in Malta were in the years 2012, 2015 and 2016 with there being an astonishing 6.7 marriages per 1000 Maltese people.

The importance of weddings and big weddings in Malta was clear to see as 2020, the year plagued by Covid-19, was the only year where the Maltese average (2.2) was lower than the European average (3.2). This means that Maltese couples opted to wait until the pandemic was over to be able to celebrate their weddings with friends and family rather than have a small service.

Why Are There So Many Rodents Running Around Malta?

Why Are There So Many Rats Running Around Malta?
May 24 2024 Share

Speaking with MaltaDaily, Arnold Sciberras, a.k.a The Exterminator, explains why we are seeing so many rodents running around the streets of Malta.

Arnold explains that not only is there a lot of construction going on and waste and hygiene not being treated properly, but various feral animals are also being tossed outside.

Everything from chickens to feral cats to the aforementioned rodents as well as hornets and cockroaches is feasting on the rubbish left outside.

People tend to ignore chickens outside, Arnold said, but cause an uproar when they see rodents, despite both of them being considered pests.

If the situation is not handled by the relevant authorities as they had done in the past through various projects, the problem will only get worse as rodents move closer into urban areas.

Spotting more of them during the daylight implies that the rodents are getting more comfortable and are thus ‘abusing’ of their ability to flourish.

Arnold reassured listeners that the rodents will only attack if cornered, but warned that if they get overly comfortably they could start moving in on people to steal food.
