Austrian women celebrate country’s first same-sex marriage

Associated Press:

BERLIN — Two Austrian women are the first same-sex couple to officially tie the knot in the predominantly Catholic country, following years of legal challenges from gay rights groups.

Public broadcaster ORF reported Tuesday that Nicole Kopaunik and Daniela Paier wed in a ceremony in Velden, southern Austria, shortly after midnight Tuesday.

The couple, both 37, had reportedly been engaged for four years.

Austria’s constitutional court ruled in 2017 that same-sex couples should have the right to marry from Jan. 1, 2019. Previously, same-sex couples could only enter into a registered partnership that granted fewer rights than marriage.

Austria’s current governing parties, the People’s Party and the Freedom Party, had strongly opposed granting same-sex couples the right to marry, but said they would respect the court’s ruling.

Austrian Supreme Court rules in favour of same-sex marriage

Same-sex couples in Austria will be able to legally marry from 2019 after a ruling by the country’s top court.

Its constitutional court said the current marriage law violated non-discrimination rules. The ruling also allows heterosexual couples to enter a civil partnership.
The move will bring the country in line with 15 other European countries.
The Netherlands became the first country to legalise same-sex marriage, in 2001.
The case was heard after a female couple challenged a 2009 law which allowed registered partnerships for same-sex couples, but not marriage.
In a statement, the court said the distinction between the different kinds of unions could not be upheld because it was discriminatory against same-sex relationships, as it forced people to disclose their sexual orientation in situations where that was not relevant.
