Legalised Lovin’

A new law has been proposed to grant NZ gay and lesbian partners the same rights as those enjoyed by married heterosexual couples. The Civil Union Bill – which is to be voted on later this year – would allow homosexual partners to officially declare their union, and make them subject to the same property, separation, and next-of-kin laws that apply to heterosexual marriages. The bill is expected to gain majority support in Parliament.
