We all know Austria kinda sucks, but...

Austrian court rules same-sex couples can marry from 2019

(CNN)Austria's top court has ruled that same-sex couples can get married from the start of 2019, declaring a previous law discriminatory.

The Constitutional Court overturned a law that restricted same-sex unions to civil partnerships, according to court documents seen by CNN.
The decision brings Austria into line with many other European nations including Germany, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, France and the UK.
Same-sex couples in Austria have been allowed to enter legal partnerships since 2010, but until now have not been able to marry.
The court made its decision based on a complaint from two women living in a partnership who refused to accept that their formal marriage permission was denied by authorities in Vienna.
The restrictions on same-sex marriage will now be lifted on 31 December 2018 with the new regulation coming into effect on 1 January 2019.
As part of its attempt to iron out inequalities in the system, heterosexual couples will from next year be able to opt for a civil partnership that falls short of marriage.

Amazing news. :D I'm not too surprised though since I already knew that Austrians in general are in favour of the gay marriage, so it was just a matter of time. :)

The politicians weren't and still aren't tho.

This makes Austria the first country in Europe where same sex marriage is treated as a human right and wasn't reached thru political ways, but a court.

Of course I know that, but I was referring to the Austrian society as a whole. :)

That’s a cute way of saying ‘a court had to legalize it because parliament wouldn’t’.

There's nothing that could stop it, because even the ÖVP said that they accept this decision.

The FPÖ is obviously against it, but alone they can't do a thing to stop this law.

They can make it a condition for a coalition. Not saying they will, but they totally can.
