  • Status is not correct "In a referendum voted on in late 2013, they reversed the decision and redefined the definition of marriage to only between man and woman "
  • Status is not correct "The correct term for a gay marriage in Croatia is "legal partnership" and its is per se absolutely equivalent to what a regular marriage represents, gay partners are allowed to have kids and even to adopt kids. The term "marriage" used to be "reserved" for a ciliv union between a man and a woman, but "legal partnership" offers totally equivalent privileges to gay partners/ spouses."
  • Other "it is called "life partnership" (životno partnerstvo)"
