TOWARDS THE E-SOCIETY: E-BUSINESS, E-COMMERCE, AND E-GOVERNMENT, B. Schmid, K. Stanoevska-Slabeva, V. Tschammer, eds., pp. 765-774, Boston: Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2001
International e-government implies cross-national coupling of administrative systems.

We will illustrate this by describing the cross-national differences in the concept of marriage, and discuss some of the implications for developing e-government applications.
