In Romania, recognized same-sex marriages, “family”

The constitutional court of Romania ruled that same-sex couples can be considered “families” and live in the country, if at least one of the spouses is a citizen of the European Union.


“The relationship between the couple, created by people of the same sex, belong in the domain “private life”, as well as to the field of “family life”, as well as the relationship between a heterosexual couple,” said the motivational part of the decision.

In early September, a panel of India’s Supreme court unanimously overturned the criminal punishment for homosexuality, which was punishable by fine or imprisonment up to 10 years.
