AbstractThe legal recognition of same-sex relationships in a growing number of countries has facilitated the existence and persistence of binational same-sex couples. However, as recent research on same-sex couples in Europe demonstrates, these couples remain disadvantaged, with circumscribed choices and expensive adaptations. Progress in granting immigration rights to partners has provided new opportunities for political organizing and resistance to discrimination in immigration law.
