Summary/Abstract: A modern phenomenon which fastly grows is the number of free relationships where people live together without any form of a recognized institutional bond, neither a civil nor a religious. These people want their civil status to be recognized as the bond of a private free union by the competent authority in the state. Such a tendency can become a challenge if one thinks of the social and legal protection of marriage which is recog-nized as a sacramental bond between a man and a woman. Such a legalization of free relationships can undermine the marriage bond and its special character which defines adequate rights of spouses. A bigger problem is the legalization of same-sex unions, as the natural difference between sexual partners becomes obscured. The author tries to answer why such a situation takes place and examines the connection between free sexual relationships and ethical liberalism.
