Law on Registered Same-Sex Partnership adopted on 22 June 2005. The law covers only property relations, the right/obligation to support socially weaker partner, and inheritance rights to a degree. It does not grant any rights in the area of social security (social and health insurance, pension rights) and it does not confer the status of a next-of-kin to the partners.
A more comprehensive Registered Partnership Bill passed the first reading in parliament in July 2004 but was rejected by parliament during the second reading in March 2005. The Bill would have provided for all rights inherent to marriage apart from joint adoption rights.
On 31 March 2005, the government proposed the new partnership bill.
From 1936 to 1940, a French detachment was garrisoned in Andorra to prevent influences of the Spanish Civil War and Franco's Spain.
In 1958, Andorra declared peace with Germany, having been forgotten on the Treaty of Versailles and remaining legally at war.
Andorra is not a full member of the European Union, but enjoys a special relationship with it, for example it is treated as an EU member for trade in manufactured goods (no tariffs) and as a non-EU member for agricultural products.
