European Parliament presses states for recognition of same-sex marriages and unions

By Nan Hunter -

The European Parliament has adopted a resolution calling for all EU member states to engage in "the mutual recognition of the effects of civil status documents." In effect, this is a declaration that EU members should recognize the marriage certificates of same-sex couples.

The Parliament said it "strongly supports plans to enable the mutual recognition of the effects of civil status documents" and "stresses the need to ensure mutual recognition" of them. The next step in the process is for the European Commission to propose ways to achieve mutual recognition of all partnerships and marriages throughout the EU.
