Slovenia - October 2022

Parliament amends law on same-sex marriage

On 4 October the Parliament passed amendments to the Family Code consistent with landmark decisions of the Constitutional Court reached in July 2022. The amendments passed by 48 MPs, with 29 against and one abstention. In July, the Constitutional Court had found distinguishing between same-sex and heterosexual couples discriminatory, and suspended regulations preventing same-sex couples from entering into marriage and from being included in the list of candidates for joint adoption. The Parliament was given six months to bring legislation in line with the ruling.
