Same Sex Marriage, Almost Legalized In Romania


And it’s worth mentioning that by mistake, too. A Romanian MP has submitted into parliamentary debate a bill about the legalization of concubinage relationships by a non-marriage procedure. The project would allow citizens to get legal status for their relationship outside marriage, under the signature of a notary. What the Romanian MP forgot to mention was the gender of the citizens, leaving way for same sex couples to legalize their status.

Although hailed by the gay and lesbian community in Romania, the project was quickly pulled back from parliament, after this oversight was revealed in the media. “Someday, the authorities will realize that this is a fact they must regulate”, said Florentina Bocioc, vice-president of ACCEPT, the leading gay and lesbian militant group in Romania.
