    Abstract

    Now that New Zealand has guaranteed freedom from discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation, one is able to argue convincingly that legislative change must occur so that same-sex couples can be recognised. This article discusses the rightsbased argument as to why the current position of the law in respect of same-sex couples is untenable before turning to consider what the best option for law reform might be.2
