Romanian Govt Opposes Bill Introducing Civil Unions

The Executive will send this position to the Parliament, inresponse to a bill put forward by democrat liberal deputy ViorelArion, who suggests creating the legal framework for civil unions,according to a government paper obtained by MEDIAFAX.

The bill aims to grant legal character to domestic partnershipsbetween two people, based on a notarized contract, providing rightsand obligations regarding joint wealth and expenses. Thisrelationship is not exclusive to different-sex couples, accordingto the act.

In the government document, the Labor Ministry says the billshould refer to the partners' minor children, and points out thatit requires amending the Civil Code. The Justice Ministry said theinitiative cannot be endorsed, given the Civil Code, adopted by theGovernment through a vote of confidence in Parliament in June2009.

The Legislative Council, a specialized consulting body of theParliament, gave a favorable report on the bill, but warned thatthe Civil Code forbids same-sex marriage and Romania does notrecognize foreign civil unions.
