Dec 13, 2007 Quickie Link: Spain Recognises UK Civil Partnerships
By vanrozenheim

(Spain) - A Gay couple who took on the British and Spanish governments over the recognition of their civil partnership have won a major victory. Paul and Martin Ward signed the civil partnership register in Devon on Valentine's Day this year, having been advised that it would be recognised in Spain, where Paul lives. However, when the couple returned to Spain to live, they found out from the British Consul in Malaga that their civil partnership was not recognised in Spain. "We both decided to fight for our partnership to be recognised here in Spain, in the same way that Spain recognises a UK heterosexual marriage and the UK recognises a Spanish Gay marriage," the couple said today.
