Can we finally add Germany to the nations that give up civil unions and just provide marriage for all?

    The English article focuses on the financial aspect, but there are plenty of articles in German discussing the likelihood of simply melding the two types of union.

    It doesn't seem to be there yet, and the current government is determined to drag its feet as long as possible.

    Germans have to change the constitution where marriage is defined as between om&ow to make that happen, which needs a 2/3 majority in both houses. With the biggest party carrying Christian in its name that is highly unlikely. A separate but equal solution is much more likely at least short term.
