European Court of Justice strengthens same-sex-marriage based on prohibition of sexual discrimination

In a landmark ruling concerning a german law suit, the European Court of Justice, the supreme court in the EU, has strengthened the rights of same-sex-marriages, or “registered-partnerships“, as same-sex-marriages are called in Germany. The Court has explicitly based it´s ruling on the prohibition of sexual discrimination (document number: C-147/081). With this ruling “same-sex-marriage” comes a little closer to equality with “heterosexual-marriage”.

The Federal Constitutional Court of Germany had already demanded equality for registered partnerships (same-sex marriages) to heterosexual marriage. However, the German Government has not delivered yet, as I wrote here on May 5th 2011: German politicians – including openly gay one´s – don´t deliver on same-sex-marriage. Important for polygamy as well.

This decision could be a step towards the recognition of polygamy since its prohibition, in my opinion, is a form of sexual discrimination. See of my

About Viktor Leberecht 94 Articles
Viktor Leberecht is my pseudonym for my work as a free lance author. I work to ensure that the freedom to freely choose the form of marriage and family is recognised as a human right and that the voluntarily and knowingly entered-into polygamy is legalized as a form of marriage. You can find information about this on my website www.viktor-leberecht.com and my theses on polygamy and monogamy and much information can be found under the menu section polygamy.
