  1. I thought this was sorted by the court case ruling on 7th July 2009 when they dealt with pensions? Why does eveything seem to have to be sorted out by going to court in Germany. At the end of March 2010 the Government I think announced that it will prepare new regulations to establish equivalence in the fields of tax law and yet there is another court case?

    So do British CP have to go to court to get their CP recognised there? Married gay couples have already done so by court action and have been now recognised as the same as civil partners? What are foreign civil unions treated like , does each country have to go to court to get recognised?

  2. It beggars belief that, despite all the admirable advances made in recent years, there are still situations where some people (non-gays) are ‘more equal than others’.

    Couples are couples. Whether they’re same-sex or not should be irrelevant when it comes to inheritance or taxation.
