Lithuanian justice minister: Same-sex couples are more propaganda than reality

 (3)
Lithuania's Ministry of Justice has drafted a bill that, if passed, would introduce the institution of partnership into the country's Civil Code. However, the bill spells out that the possibility to form partnerships would only apply to opposite-sex couples. According to Justice Minister Juozas Bernatonis, there is no need to legalize same-sex partnership because there are hardly any same-sex couples in Lithuania.
