an important step… (2)

Political interpretations a part, civil unions in Italy have been an interesting innovation and a definitely important step in the path of the civilization. Now in Italy, no matter of the sex, two people can live together and share some rights previously recognized to the traditional families only.
Of course, they could be better. No possible yet the adoption, neither to guarantee the partner the survivor’s pension.
Some catholics, conservatives or opportunists affirm
that civil unions are not in accordance with the Constitution of Italian Republic, in base of the article 29:

“The Republic recognises the rights of the family as a natural society founded on marriage.
Marriage is based on the moral and legal equality of the spouses within the limits laid down by law to guarantee the unity of the family.”

On the opposite, the article 3 sounds as following:

“All citizens have equal social dignity and are equal before the law, without distinction of sex, race, language, religion, political opinion, personal and social conditions. It is the duty of the Republic to remove those obstacles of an economic or social nature which constrain the freedom and equality of citizens, thereby impeding the full development of the human person and the effective participation of all workers in the political, economic and social organisation of the country.”

And please remember, the Italian Constitution is one of the best in the world…
