Hello and welcome to Wefugees. 
Thank you for your question. 
From what I have heard, it is indeed not always so easy to get married in Germany as a refugee. 
We answered a similar question a week ago, maybe you will find that answer helpful. 


Also, there is a helpful summary about the process of marriage that you can find at our blog:


I hope to have helped you with this. If you have any further questions or are looking for advice, a registry office or similar in your area, we can help you with your question. 

With best regards

I didn't apply for asylum yet but I would like to know where can I get married easily like France, Portugal or Luxembourg because my girlfriend is from Luxembourg. And if I'm asylum in Germany and get married somewhere else then after it will be a issue to make registration in Germany?
We generally can only provide information about the rules and regulations in Germany here. My first impression is that it would be easier to get married in Luxembourg as your girlfriend is a citizen of that country and is resident there. If you apply for asylum in Germany, you are not allowed to leave Germany until your case has been decided upon.
