The Council of the EU to adopt a political agreement on the regulations on matrimonial property regimes and the property consequences of registered partnerships
The Council of the European Union is expected to adopt at its next meeting on Justice and Home Affairs, scheduled to take place on 3 and 4 December 2015, a political agreement on the compromise text of the future regulation on jurisdiction, applicable law and the recognition and enforcement of decisions in matters of matrimonial property regimes (see here, however, for a corrigendum), and the compromise text of the future regulation on jurisdiction, applicable law and the recognition and enforcement of decisions regarding the property consequences of registered partnerships.
The initiative comes one year after the Council had observed that “some member states needed more time to complete their internal reflection process” on the two Commission proposals of 2011 and decided to “re-examine this matter as soon as possible, and by no later than the end of 2015”.
Sadly not. Was it Poland or Hungary that vetoed this?
Eastern europe still has a very different view of same sex issues.
Enhanced co-operation may take some time.
Actually both of them. A video with the entire Council debate can be seen at http://video.consilium.europa.eu/webcast.aspx?ticket=775-979-16687.
