  • Status is not correct "Civil unions are still recognized, parallel to same-sex marriages: "With its decision of 4 December 2017 (? VfGH)German text, the Constitutional Court repealed the provisions which distinguished between opposite-sex and same-sex couples. This means that opposite-sex couples in Austria can also enter into a registered partnership. This has in principle been possible since 1 January 2019." https://www.oesterreich.gv.at/en/themen/familie_und_partnerschaft/eingetragene_partnerschaft/Seite.1890200.html "
