Austrian constitutional court legalizes same-sex marriage

Austria legalizes same-sex marriage

Austria's Constitutional Court has announced that gay marriage will be legalized in the Catholic-majority nation starting in 2019, arguing that its traditional marriage law is "discriminatory".

Austria's Constitutional Court nullified a previous ruling that prevented same-sex couples from getting married, meaning that by January 1st, 2019 at the absolute latest, LGBTQI couples will be allowed to legally marry in the traditionally conservative country.

The distinction between marriage and registered partnership can no longer be upheld without discriminating against same-sex couples, the court said in a statement.

Same sex couples have been able to access civil unions since 2010, and in 2013 gained the right to adopt children.

Adam Salandra is a writer, performer and host in Los Angeles.

The reason for considering this case was the complaint of two women who refused marriage.

The court also concluded that the law on registered partnership, which allows only same-sex couples to register their relationship, discriminates against different-sex couples.

The court's ruling added: "The resulting discriminatory effect is seen in the fact that through the different title of the family status, people living in same-sex partnerships have to disclose their sexual orientation even in situations in which it is not, and must not be, relevant and. are highly likely to be discriminated against".

Same-sex marriage is legal in 25 countries.

It is therefore up to each member state to introduce same-sex marriage or civil unions. In other countries, including Chile and Taiwan, such legislation is being drafted. The Netherlands was the first in the world, with an equal marriage law that came into force in 2001.

In Germany, women and men are allowed to Wednesday to a same-sex partner since October.
