Transsexuals have a right to obtain a modification of civil status (Article 8 European Convention on Human Rights) and a right to get married (Article 12 European Convention on Human Rights). However some limits exist, linked with the protection of the pre-established family. If a transsexual is married before his sexual conversion, and because of the margin of appreciation, the State is allowed to refuse the modification of the National identity number if this modification means the recognition of a gay-marriage.
