A total of 1390 homosexual couples have entered into registered partnerships in the 10.5 million Czech Republic since the respective law came into force in July 2006. 130 couples have since terminated the arrangement. The Czech Republic was first in the post-communist bloc to legalise same-sex partnerships which has led a few dozen foreign couples to tie the knot in this country. The same-sex partnership offers similar rights to marriage but does not allow the couple to adopt children.
