Polish top court issues ruling on same-sex marriage

Poland’s highest administrative court has issued a ruling on same-sex marriage which the gay couple who brought the case say shows that such unions are not barred under the constitution. However, a conservative legal group has dismissed that claim as “fake news”. Article 18 of the constitution states that “marriage as a union of a man and a woman, family, motherhood and parenthood are under the protection and care of the Republic of Poland”. Opponents of same-sex marriage have argued that this means marriage is defined as being exclusively between a man and a woman. However, many legal experts say that it only puts such marriages under the protection and care of the state, without prohibiting other types of unions.
