ZURICH (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 26th September, 2021) Almost two-thirds of Swiss voters backed a proposal to legalize same-sex marriages in a referendum on Sunday.

Preliminary results show that 64.1% are in favor of the "marriage for everyone" initiative, while 35.

9% are against it. The turnout stands at 52.6%.

Same-sex couples in Switzerland have been allowed to register partnerships since 2007. However, this status offers only limited rights, compared to a registered marriage, and does not allow the joint adoption of children.
