One Year


No anniversary in my personal life, but a more influential one deserves mention: July 1 marks a year since same-sex partnerships became legally recognized in the Czech Republic. After a long road through the parliament, the bill recognizing partnerships was finally passed last March.

According to Daniela Lazarová at Radio Prague, 346 same-sex couples were united during the year. Of that number, at least two of the pairs have already divorced. A Czech comic reportedly quipped, "Well now at least they know what we go through—fancy putting up such a fight for it."
