Jan. 1: Austria legalizes same-sex marriage

Deeming all existing laws discriminatory, the Constitutional Court of Austria legalized marriage between same-sex couples. In doing so, Austria joined several other European nations such as Germany, France and Spain. Prior to this, same-sex couples in the country were only allowed to enter legal partnerships but not get married.
