Romanian Senators amended on Tuesday the Family Code applied at national level to clearly specify that the family is based entirely upon the marriage of a man and a woman and not upon the reunion of the partners, as stipulated before. The initiative pertains to a senator from the far-right Greater Romania Party (PRM) and was accepted by all members of the Judicial Commission in the Senate.

The amendment referred to the first article of the Family Code and leaves no room for interpretation. The text added refers that the union between a man and a woman respects the Biblical requirements.

The amendment will be approved in the Senate and then be sent to the Chamber of Deputies for approval.
