Romania Government Same-Sex Marriage Recognition
The Romanian government is contemplating legislation to recognize same-sex marriages conducted within any European Union country. However, NGOs, including ACCEPT, argue that the proposed law fails to ensure equal rights for the Romanian LGBT community. The legislation comes in response to rulings from the CJEU and ECHR, emphasizing the respect for private and family life. Despite appearing promising, the proposed bill has limitations and does not acknowledge partners as spouses, leaving Romanians, including those in same-sex relationships, in a continuous fight for rights equivalent to other EU citizens. The legislation is still pending approval and may face further delays, reflecting the ongoing struggle for legal recognition and protection of same-sex couples in Romania. read the full article here.
