Italy refused recognition of LGBT marriages performed abroad

Written by

A few weeks ago, we had good news from Italy. The Mayor of Turin recognized the baby of a lesbian couple for the first time. Now, the Italian government has decided to ban the recognition of same-sex marriages conducted abroad.

In Italy, marriage equality is not legal yet. Only civil unions are available to LGBT couples. And now the supreme court judges decided that if LGBT couples want to be recognized, they have to register their marriages as civil unions.

They said civil unions offered the same benefits as marriage but this is not entirely true. While they offer the same protections, they don't allow adoption. And it's very difficult for LGBT parents to get recognition for their family.

With the new and rather far-right government, not sure that the situation is improving.
