The distinction was necessitated by the partitioning of the archipelago in 1899. Samoa includes nine inhabited islands on top of a submarine mountain range.
All Samoans adhere to a set of core social values and practices known as fa'a Samoa and speak the Samoan language. The largest islands are Savai'i at 703 square miles (1820 square kilometers) and Upolu at 430 square miles (1114 square kilometers), on which the capital, Apia, is located.
That process produced a unique constitution that embodied elements of Samoan and British political traditions and led to a peaceful transition to independence on 1 January 1962. The national and political cultures that characterize the nation are unambiguously Samoan.
The first marriage ceremony in Samoa is generally a civil ceremony, which makes the marriage legal, then about a week later a church ceremony is often undertaken.
The language is a cherished symbol of cultural identity. A representation of the Southern Cross appears on both the national flag and the emblem of state.
The close link between Samoan society and Christianity is symbolized in the national motto "Samoa is founded on God" ( Fa'avae ile Atua Samoa ) and in a highlighted cross on the national emblem.
Most Samoan couples have three or four children in total.
During these early years of a marriage, many young couples will live in the home of the groom's parents (but sometimes also the bride's parents), until they can afford their own home.
