Abstract: Taking into account the situation in the world – fast technological development and spreading of simplified mutual relationships (relationship liberalisation) – the following issues are becoming more topical: rights to respect for private life, housing, correspondence and “family life”, as well as compliance of family law with social reality, improvement of demographic situation, the necessity for sex education for children, therefore, constructive and cumulative actions from the side of legislators are required with an aim to modernise family law regulations in conformity to current needs of the society. It refers to both Latvia and other countries that have not yet adopted regulatory framework for the union outside marriage, i.e., partnership of opposite sex couples has not been regulated by law, thus, union outside marriage between opposite-sex individuals who establish a family has not been legally recognised. Moreover, the issue on legalisation of same-sex relationships within national legal provisions is even more debatable.
