Registered partnerships in Finland (Finnish: rekisteröity parisuhde) were created for same-sex couples in 2002. The legislation grants similar rights and responsibilities to same-sex couples as to married different-sex couples. Instead of marriage it creates a separate institution, but allows couples to adopt the biological children of their partner.[1] Registered partnerships, which are available only to same-sex couples, are registered and dissolved using a procedure similar to that for civil marriage. The legislation also permits joint custody of children and grants immigration rights to a foreign partner.

As of 2010, the government of Finland has yet to publicly consider both gender-neutral marriage and full joint adoption laws, whereas both its neighbouring countries Norway and Sweden have already implemented both gender-neutral marriage law and full joint adoption.

A poll conducted by Christian newpaper Kotimaa reported that a narrow majority of Finnish MPs opposed same-sex marriage. Of the 126 MPs who responded asked if they would support a gender-neutral marriage law 46% were in favour and 54% were opposed. 63% of Social Democratic representatives supported gender-neutral marriage as well all MPs from the Greens and Left Alliance. Majorities of the Centre Party and National Coalition Party opposed gender-neutral marriage.[2][3]
