In Obergefell v. Hodges, the Supreme Court extended the reach of the U.S. Constitution to the area of same-sex marriages. Europe, seen as a whole, seems to fall behind. While, in some countries, a right to same-sex marriage is acknowledged at the statutory level, its constitutional status remains unclear. And in many other countries legislation is less open towards same-sex couples.
