Slovenia gives same-sex couples most legal rights
February 27, 2017
Slovenia has enacted new legislation that gives same-sex partnerships the same legal rights as male-female marriages, except that homosexuals are not allowed adopt children or conceive children through artificial insemination.
In 2015, Slovenian lawmakers had approved a measure that redefined marriage, allowing for legal recognition of same-sex unions. That law was quickly overturned by a referendum, in which nearly two-thirds of the country’s voters rejected same-sex marriage. The new legislation takes a step back toward legal acceptance for homosexual unions.
