Families are now legal even without marriage

Living together without marriage is already legal after the acceptance of the new Family codex yesterday. This means that a non-married couple will be legally regulated as family.

The child must have specified origin from its birth, is said in the motives of the bill. The new Family Codex legally regularizes marriage contract while its contraction can be made in the beginning as well as in the meantime of marriage. The adoption procedures are also facilitated.

Adoption will be allowed even without the knowledge of the parents if a child is not asked for in a period of 6 months after its accommodation in the orphanage, unless there is a well-founded reason.
