Filing of the Marriage Act

At the end of 2015, one day after the Marriage and Family Relations Act was rejected in a referendum, then independent parliament member Jani Moderndorfer filed a Partnership Act, which, after being accepted, eliminated most of the inequalities for same-sex couples. However, there is still a difference in the name, the inaccessibility for same-sex couples for a joint adoption and a insemination ban for biomedical help for same-sex couples and single women. Passing of the law represented a major step forward, for which Legebitra has been striving ever since the first filing of the proposal of the Civil Union Act in 2003.
