The Law on Civil Partnerships:
A Civil Partnership gives couples rights and responsibilities very similar to those of married couples. Civil Partners are entitled to many of the rights and responsibility as married couples, including but not limited to, the same property rights and inheritance tax exemptions and also the ability to get parental responsibility for a partner’s children.
