United Nations recommendations also cover census topics to be collected, official definitions, classifications and other useful information to co-ordinate international practice.

In some cultures, marriage is recommended or considered to be compulsory before pursuing any sexual activity. When defined broadly, marriage is considered a cultural universal. A marriage ceremony is known as a wedding.
