Sixteen out of the 28 countries that have legalised same-sex marriage worldwide are situated in Europe. A further thirteen European countries have legalised civil unions or other forms of more limited recognition for same-sex couples. Several European countries do not recognise any form of same-sex unions. Of these, however, Armenia recognises same-sex marriages performed abroad,  and Croatia, Hungary and Montenegro recognise same-sex partnerships. Eastern Europe is seen as having fewer legal rights and protections, worse living conditions, and less supportive public opinion for LGBT people than that in Western Europe. All European countries that allow marriage also allow joint adoption by same-sex couples, as does Andorra.
