Submitted at Tuesday, 18. February 2020 um 10:50 Uhr, in category "Chapter 2 – Justice and citizens right" with No. 202. Author/s: "LYMEC Bureau, Radikal Ungdom, Joventut Nacionalista de Catalunya, JUNOS, Venstres Ungdom, JOVD (drafted by the policy renewal working group).

The Skopje Spring Congress 2020 may decide:

Recognise Same-Sex Marriages in the EU

This resolution archives Resolution 2.10 on "Recognise Same-Sex marriages in the entire EU".

Gender and Sexual Rights, Civil Liberties, Social Rights

For consideration on the annual Congress of the European Liberal Youth (LYMEC) in Skopje, North Macedonia on 3-5 April 2020

Considering that:

- Same-sex marriages are still not legal in a number of member states of the European Union. Other regulated forms of partnerships, such as civil unions or registered partnerships, are available to same-sex couples in several member states, but often do not afford the same scope of rights as marriage.

- Some member states do not legally recognize same-sex relationships at all, and in some member states, the constitution limits marriage to heterosexual couples.

- Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is incompatible with liberal values.

- While the status of contractual interpersonal partnership is a fundamental concept in family law, there are no legitimate grounds to restrict the freedom to enter into such an agreement on the basis of sexual orientation, and therefore all contractual interpersonal relationships deserve the same respect, recognition, rights and aid in all countries of the European Union.

- The free movement of individuals is at the core of the founding values of the EU.

LYMEC calls for:

- all family legislation and family recognition on a European level shall include same-sex couples, affording equal treatment of all contractual interpersonal partnerships by the European Union.

- all member states to recognize same-sex couples who have married or entered into a civil union, cohabitation or similar arrangement in another member state, even if the member state does not itself perform such marriages or arrangements. 

- That the European Commission step up its actions in enforcing the existing anti-discrimination policy in case of violations in a Member state or a EU candidate country.
