LGBT activists across Australia had been celebrating Wednesday, as 61 per cent of this populace voted in support of allowing same-sex couples to wed within an advisory referendum.

Presuming lawmakers don’t ignore the outcome, Australia could be the 26th nation on earth to legalize same-sex wedding. However in other countries throughout the global globe, the battle to marry whom you want continues. Listed here is a run-down associated with the situation throughout the world.
Europe is starkly split in the problem of equal wedding.
The continent offers the Netherlands, which 19 years back became the very first nation in the whole world allowing same-sex couples to wed. Yet also inside the European Union (EU), a bloc of 28 fairly rich, liberal countries, six states try not to recognize same-sex unions of any sort, and 15 try not to permit marriage that is same-sex.
