Voters Say Gays and Lesbians in Liechtenstein Can Partner Legally
Voters in Liechtenstein, the tiny country wedged between Switzerland and Austria, on Sunday approved a partnership law for gay and lesbian couples, the AP reports:
Roman Catholic groups had challenged the law saying it would weaken traditional family ties.
Gay and lesbian couples will now be put on a par with heterosexual couples when it comes to inheritance, social security, immigration and taxation. They will still be barred from adopting children or accessing reproductive medical services.
