Equal Civil Partnerships Granted in Austria

The Austrian Constutional Court has just given an early Christmas present to equal rights groups in the country with two ground-breaking rulings:

  • Marriage to be recognised and allowed as a fundamental human right for same sex couples
  • Registered Partnership to be allowed and legally recognised for different sex couples.

Both will be available from 1st January 2019.

Congratulations to everyone involved!
