Well, the courts could weigh in as well in the meantime:

Quote
Dutch couple sues for recognition of their same-sex marriage in Austria

TYROL, Austria – Chretien van der Leest and Edwin Veldt are Dutch citizens living in Tyrol, Austria where they run holiday homes. When the Netherlands legalized marriage for same-sex couples in 2001, the couple married. However in Austria, based on a decree by the Austrian Minister of the Interior van der Leest and Veldt’s marriage is only recognized as a registered partnership effectively downgrading the recognition to a second-class marriage.

With the support of Rechtskomitee LAMBDA (RKL), Austria’s LGBT civil rights organization, the couple has started a lawsuit for recognition of their same-sex marriage in Austria.

European Union citizenship guarantees the couple the ability to reside in any member-state of the Union and to work there, without having to accept disadvantages.

The couple has taken their case to the Austrian Constitutional Court and to the Administrative Supreme Court, asking these courts to refer their case to the Court of Justice of the European Union for a preliminary judgment.

“This married couple is determined to take their case up to the highest European courts,” says Dr. Helmut Graupner, president of Austria’s LGBT civil rights organisation Rechtskomitee LAMBDA (RKL) and counsel for the applicants.

Will be interesting to see what the Court rules. I see 2 scenarios:

* The Dutch SSM will be recognized by Austria and therefore all other foreign SSM as well, but that LGBT Austrians are still unable to marry.

* The Dutch SSM (and all other foreign ones) will be recognized by Austria and because of this the court rules that Austrian LGBTs can now marry as well.

With Gustaf's permission, I am bumping this thread since we only have 1 year left until 2020!

Let's also be proud of the progress we've made since I made this thread in 2013.

Let's see, out of the countries presented here, it seems like Ireland, Australia, Argentina, Finland and Germany have since legalised same-sex marriage. Taiwan was set to, but voters rejected it in a referendum. Not as good as I was expecting, honestly. Baby steps...

Argentina legalised gay marriage 3 and a half years before this poll was made
