MEPs call for more rights for same sex couples in Europe
Same sex marriage is a reality in five European countries (Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Sweden). In some others, homosexual couples can establish a civil partnership. What if they move to another EU country where that is not the case? Tuesday night MEPs asked the Commission 3 questions about discrimination of same sex married people or those in civil union couples who “can experience situations of direct and indirect discrimination when working, studying and traveling in the EU”.
