    This is good news, but not good enough. We must achieve equality and that means NO “special” category, NO legal difference. Marriage must either be afforded to queers OR Civil Union must replace marriage for everyone. The basis of discrimination against queers is corrupted religious doctrine. Civil Union is placating and allows bigots the stretching room to continue ostracizing queers and keeps that separation fertile for hatred. If queers are not given the rights of marriage then marriage should be eliminated from any legal recognition for anyone. EQUALITY!

    True, Wayne, but considering that Liechtenstein is a majority-Catholic country this news is wonderful. It’s a step in the right direction. It’s a step toward full marriage equality. What is particularly encouraging is that it passed unanimously, despite official and vocal opposition from the church. Several countries have followed a “civil unions first, marriage equality soon thereafter” pattern, and a partnership act is better than zilch. It’s far more than we here in America currently have.

    Liechtenstein is currently run by two right-wing parties, the left has only one seat in parliament so this is a very good news. Besides they will only go for full marriage rights when Switzerland has them.
