Updated Romanian marriage law


In 2017, the Romanian Parliament’s Chamber of Deputies voted with a vast majority to introduce an important specification in their Constitution regarding the real nature of marriage, mainly a union between a man and a woman.

On September 11, the Senate gave its own approval to this change, again with a vast majority (107 for, 13 against, 7 abstentions). The proposition will now be submitted to a referendum. The referendum, scheduled for next month, is expected to give the final approval, as a few millions inhabitants recently demanded the introduction of this change through a petition.

This move reflects the values of the Orthodox Church concerning families and children.
