The Future of Registered Partnerships: Family Recognition Beyond Marriage?


The Future of Registered Partnerships: Family Recognition Beyond Marriage?

Edited by Jens M. Scherpe and Andy Hayward



591 pages


European Family Law; Volume 44


Through 19 chapters, family law specialists from Europe examine the legal recognition of family relationships between adults, regardless of gender, in the form of registered partnerships as an alternative to marriage for same-sex and opposite-sex couples, as well as a broader range of relationships, particularly in light of the extension of marriage to same-sex couples in some jurisdictions. They consider the nature, function, and purpose of registered partnerships and variations in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, the Netherlands, France, England and Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Greece and Cyprus, Spain, Belgium, Australia, and New Zealand. The final section looks at registered partnerships from a human rights perspective and the jurisprudence of the European Convention on Human Rights and the institutional response of the European Union.
