163 registered civil unions in three years

A total of 163 couples were united through the civil union law in three years, according to Civil Liberties Minister Helena Dalli. 

The number includes 22 same-sex couples who had initially been registered overseas while a baby was also adopted by a gay couple in the same period. 

The civil unions law provides the same rights and obligations as a married couple. 

The introduction of the law has led to a more inclusive and open society where people are not judged or emarginated, the minister told a news conference.

Dr Dalli spoke of the change in mentality in the country, especially towards LBTIQ individuals who now have the same rights and obligations.
