Austria Will Legalise Same-Sex Marriage From 2019



Austria’s Constitutional Court has legalised same-sex marriage after ruling that a ban on gay weddings was discriminatory. 

The case was heard after a lesbian couple was denied permission to marry in the Austrian capital, Vienna.  

The women argued that the refusal was unfair and that it violated the country's equality laws, and the court agreed with them. 

Austria's first gay weddings are expected to take place in January 2019 at the latest. 





This is fantastic news for the country's LGBT-community.  

Many European countries already allow same-sex marriage including neighbouring Germany, who legalised gay marriage back in June. 

Good news for opposite-sex couples, too, as civil partnerships will be offered to everyone, including heterosexuals. 

It's interesting that Austria is expanding availability beyond the LGBT community whereas here in the UK, the Government is considering scrapping civil partnerships entirely.
