Same-sex marriage or civil unions are not currently recognised in Albania. However, Albania's governing Democrats have proposed a law allowing same-sex civil marriages.[1] If passed, Albania will become the sixth European nation to legalise same-sex marriages, following in the footsteps of the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Sweden and Norway, and the first predominantly Muslim (38% to 79%)[2] country.

A 2007 poll, which consisted of mostly Albanian youths, found that 19% of those polled support same-sex marriage and only 7% supported adoption rights for same-sex couples.

Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisha announced in a cabinet meeting on 29 July 2009 that the government would push for a law that recognises marriages between partners of the same sex. He said that the law had already been put to parliament.[3][4]
According to another sources same-sex marriage bill should come before parliament in autumn of 2009.[5][6]
