The restrictions on same-sex marriage are now set to be lifted on the final day of 2018, unless the government decides to do it earlier, and the new law will go into effect on January 1, 2019.
Last month, Australia became the 26th nation to follow suit after the country voted overwhelming in favour of legalising same-sex marriage. However, in the state's laws on marriage it had been explicitly stated that only two people of the opposite sex could marry.
"Austria is the first European country to recognise marriage equality for same-gender couples as a fundamental human right".
Constitutional courts in South Africa, Colombia, and Taiwan have also ruled that a ban on same-sex marriage in unconstitutional.
While LGBTQI couples will have to wait for that rule expiration date to pass, the court also ruled that the individual couple that challenged the issue in court - along with four other couples who filed complaints - would be allowed to marry immediately.
