It is true, Tryval, that your question isn't very clear.  You ask if anyone has experience/knowledge of the 'situation' regarding French citizenship for Britons married to French.  But what do you mean by 'situation'?  One marries a French person, applies for French citizenship according to the rules, is granted citizenship (or not) and bingo!  one has two nationalities.  That's all really.  What did your Canadian friend think might happen?

I must admit to not quite understanding the question!

The persons 'status' would only change if they requested french nationallity.

They dont get it automatically by marriage!

What do you mean 'situation'?  If you are British and married to a French citizen you can apply for French nationality after a few years.  You will then have both nationalities.
