Number of civil partnerships in France 1999-2019

Civil partnerships or PACS for "Civil Solidarity Pact" is a common practice in France. This contract does not bring the same rights and duties to the couple as a marriage contract, but it does make it possible to organize life together. Introduced in 1999, the PACS was the first type of contract giving rights to same-sex couples.
The practice has increased sharply over the first ten years, reaching more than 200,000 unions in 2010. The practice then lost interest among the French before increasing again to reach its peak in 2018 with nearly 210,000 unions.
