Very likely Germany will have Marriage Equality in 48 hours.
Here is who we have to thank for that: a 28 year old gay man from Berlin who asked Merkel on Monday (while she was at a public event of a tabloid) when he will finally be able to call the man he loves his husband. She gave a wishy-washy answer about how MPs should be voting on this issue according to their consciene blablabla. But one thing led to another and now we’ll have a vote on Friday.
So thank you Uli Köppe for asking our chancellor this question. We would probably have had another 4 years of stonewalling on this issue without you standing up.
