Survey: 69% Of Swiss Backs Marriage Equality

A new survey conducted in Switzerland shows that seven out of ten people are in favor of marriage for same-sex couples who, for the moment, have civil unions.

Indeed, in 2007, the law allowing civil unions came into force, but the latter does not provide full equality between couples since this partnership does not give access to the same rights as married couples.

The survey, conducted by the LGBTQ group Pink Cross, thus reveals that the Swiss people are willing to allow same-sex couples to marry with 69% of people in favor of the opening of marriage.

One can see in this particular investigation that women, as usual, are more open to the equal marriage than men. On a political point of view, 59% of the members from the right-wing Swiss People’s Party is in favor of the law and 94% for the left-wing Green Party.
