Czech Republic set to offer gay unions
After having passed though the Czech Senate (45 of 65 Senators voted 'yes'), a law permitting same-sex civil unions awaits only the signature of the President to become law. If passed, the Czech Republic will become the first post-communist country, and the 13th European Union member nation, to permit civil unions between same-sex partners, even if the present legislation will continue to forbid joint adoption by such couples.
