Liechtenstein To Get Gay Equality

The principality of Liechtenstein is drafting legislation which would give same sex couples legal equality. A bill has been drawn up which is waiting approval by the country’s parliament.

If it is stamped it will give gay and lesbian couples the same rights as married heterosexual married couples, including tax, inheritance and health benefits. Same-sex couples, however, will not be given the right to adopt children if the new legislation is passed.
