Articolo 9 - Diritto di sposarsi e di costituire una famiglia

Il diritto di sposarsi e il diritto di costituire una famiglia sono garantiti secondo le leggi nazionali che ne disciplinano l'esercizio.

  • Text:

    Questo articolo si basa sull'articolo 12 della CEDU, che recita: `A partire dall’età minima per contrarre matrimonio, l’uomo e la donna hanno il diritto di sposarsi e di fondare una famiglia secondo le leggi nazionali che regolano l’esercizio di tale diritto.`. La formulazione di questo diritto è stata aggiornata al fine di disciplinare i casi in cui le legislazioni nazionali riconoscono modi diversi dal matrimonio per costituire una famiglia. L'articolo non vieta né impone la concessione dello status matrimoniale a unioni tra persone dello stesso sesso. Questo diritto è pertanto simile a quello previsto dalla CEDU, ma la sua portata può essere più estesa qualora la legislazione nazionale lo preveda.

    Preamble - Explanations relating to the Charter of Fundamental Rights:
    Le presenti spiegazioni erano state elaborate, nella versione iniziale, sotto l'autorità del praesidium della Convenzione che aveva redatto la Carta dei diritti fondamentali dell’Unione europea e sono ora state aggiornate sotto la responsabilità del praesidium della Convenzione europea, sulla scorta degli adeguamenti redazionali che quest’ultima Convenzione ha apportato al testo della Carta (in particolare agli articoli 51 e 52) e dell’evoluzione del diritto dell’Unione. Benché non abbiano di per sé status di legge, esse rappresentano un prezioso strumento d’interpretazione destinato a chiarire le disposizioni della Carta.

  • Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, General comment No. 1 (2014)

    Preamble:
    ‘8. [...] The right to equal recognition before the law implies that legal capacity is a universal attribute inherent in all persons by virtue of their humanity and must be upheld for persons with disabilities on an equal basis with others. Legal capacity is indispensable for the exercise of civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights. It acquires a special significance for persons with disabilities when they have to make fundamental decisions regarding their health, education and work. The denial of legal capacity to persons with disabilities has, in many cases, led to their being deprived of many fundamental rights, including the right to vote, the right to marry and found a family, reproductive rights, parental rights, the right to give consent for intimate relationships and medical treatment, and the right to liberty.‘
    ‘29. [...] (f) Support in decision-making must not be used as justification for limiting other fundamental rights of persons with disabilities, especially the right to vote, the right to marry, or establish a civil partnership, and found a family, reproductive rights, parental rights, the right to give consent for intimate relationships and medical treatment, and the right to liberty;‘
