02-08-2011

According to Colourplanet.cz, 1181 gay and lesbian couples entered into registered partnerships since the respective law enabling this came into force five years ago. 89 registered partnerships were annulled. The law legalizing registered partnerships was approved in 2006 after lengthy debate and four rejected bills. It gives gays and lesbians similar rights as in marriage but does not allow them to adopt children.
