Lithua­nia's op­po­si­tion Lib­eral Move­ment pro­poses to al­low civil part­ner­ships for both un­mar­ried op­po­site-sex cou­ples and same-sex cou­ples. Vik­torija Cmi­lytė-nielsen, an­other ini­tia­tor of the amend­ment to the Civil Code, said that they pro­pose to recog­nise in law co­hab­i­ta­tion, a com­mon form of re­la­tion­ship in Lithua­nia. The Lib­er­als pro­pose two ways of record­ing the fact of part­ner­ship: by reg­is­ter­ing it with a no­tary pub­lic or by co­hab­it­ing for more than a year. Sev­eral bills had been tabled to the Seimas to al­low civil part­ner­ships for both dif­fer­ent-sex cou­ples and same-sex cou­ples, but none of them reached the sec­ond read­ing in the par­lia­ment.
