Slovakia Parliament Rejected The Marriage Equality Bill

Written by 

Slovakia

 

The Slovak Parliament approved a constitutional amendment which will define the marriage as a union between a man and a woman, thus prohibiting the marriage for the same-sex couples.

This proposal had been introduced by the Social Democratic Party, in charge of the government, and the Christian Democrats and obtained 102 out of 150 of the votes.

Still a country which is part of the European Union and which does not comply with its LGBT laws.

In Slovakia, there is certainly no marriage equality but there are no civil unions either. According to a 2012 study, 47% of the population would be favorable to the civil unions but I am not sure that is set up by this government.
