German Chancellor Angela Merkel has poured cold water on hopes that Germany would be the next country to embrace marriage equality. Speaking after the Irish referendum, Merkel’s spokesperson said: “Today was an important milestone in dismantling discrimination and the Chancellor is pleased about that, but same-sex marriages are not a goal of this government. Every country makes its own laws – some countries go one route while others go another. In Germany we’ll take a path that suits Germany.” Approximately 75% of Germans support marriage equality, however, it is believed that the influential conservatives in Merkel’s party, the Christian Democrats, are holding the country back from full equality.
