Italian Court Recognizes A Same-Sex Relationship

Written by 




For the first time, the legal system of Italy identified a same-sex relationship as marriage. 

Italy does not recognize the unions between same-sex people but a couple, married in New York, hoped to see recognizing its marriage by the Tuscan administration.

As in each legal decision applying to same-sex people, there is a possibility that the decision of the court is appealed but nevertheless, it is the first time that there is a recognition of a same-sex relationship so one will not be deprived of this good news !

Grosseto judge Claudio Boccini ruled that there was "no reference to gender" in the city council register of married couples and the couple in question should therefore be included. The right to marry "has acquired new and wider connotations, which include marriage between two people of the same gender," the judge said, according to The Agence France-Presse.
