All of Italy's Western European neighbors recognize or have legalized civil unions and gay marriage.By Melissa Prax | January 28, 2016
Italy is the only country left in Western Europe that hasn't legalized gay marriage or civil unions.

The largely conservatively Catholic country has been slow to come on board. In the past, the Vatican has shot down possibilities of legalization. (Video via PBS)
