Marines has been twinned with the town of Kington in England since 1979. The two places are of a similar population. In Marines there is a residential side-street called "Place Kington", whilst in Kington there is a covered space by the market hall called "Place-de-Marines".
Schools in Marines:
- Ecole maternelle des Murgers (preschool)
- Ecole élémentaire Paul Cézanne
- Collège des Hautiers (junior high school)
Marines is located next to a village called Us. In the surrounding area, both villages are indicated with signs showing both names listed, which reads as "US MARINES". A regular joke in the region is to make people believe that these signs indicate a nearby U.S Marine Corps base.
