Austrian constitutional court legalizes same-sex marriage

Austria legalizes same-sex marriage

Deutsche Welle reported that in Tuesday's decision the court said that although gay couples already have essentially the same rights as married couples, having been allowed to enter into registered partnerships since 2010, "the distinction between marriage and registered partnership. can not be upheld in this day and age without discriminating against same-sex couples".

Nevertheless, our Dumb & Dumber-punchline sister country Austria - that's A-U-S-T-R-I-A - has just seen a landmark court ruling that will see the country gain marriage equality by no later than 2019.

In Europe continue to legalize same-sex relationships.

Thus, they ruled that and the country must remove that gender-biased phrase and allow marriage equality by 2019 unless the Austrian Parliament decides to pass legislation legalizing same-sex marriages before then. Yes!

The move will bring the country in line with 15 other European countries.

The case was brought by two women who have a registered partnership but wanted to get married.

The two parties negotiating to form a new government after Austria's October election, the conservative Austrian People's Party and the right-wing Freedom Party, have so far opposed gay marriage.

The ruling noted that same-sex couples have increasingly been granted rights equal to those of married, heterosexual couples since civil partnerships were permitted in 2010.

Same-sex marriage is now legal in 25 countries around the world. The court's Tuesday ruling, however, overturns this law and repeals all restrictions on gay marriage.

But many other European countries in the formerly Communist east - including Bulgaria, Poland, Romania and Slovakia - still deny homosexuals the right to enter into any legally recognized union.
