Germany became the 23rd country in the world to legalise marriage equality on Friday.
Meanwhile in Australia... there's still a massive brawl about how marriage equality should be legalised.
Polling repeatedly shows that a majority of Australians support marriage equality. Both major party leaders support reform, as do a majority of parliamentarians.
However, the country is locked in a political stalemate over whether there should be a national vote on marriage (broadly supported by the government and anti-marriage equality groups) or a vote in the parliament (broadly supported by the opposition and LGBTI rights groups).
