Kylie Minogue and fiancé Joshua Sasse won’t wed until same-sex bill is passed in Australia

The pop princess’ fiancé took to Australian television to deliver the news.

This was not the vow we expected Kylie Minogue’s fiancé Joshua Sasse to make when talking about marrying the 48-year-old Neighbours alumni.

In an interview with Sunrise yesterday, the British actor, 28, had hosts Sam and Kochie spinning around when he declared that he and his bride-to-be will not exchange I Dos until the same-sex marriage bill is passed in Australia.

When quizzed by Sam about the “chance of a Melbourne wedding”, he replied: “Me and Kylie have talked about it, and we are not comfortable getting married until this law is passed.”

“This is something we have talked about and decided upon, and I wanted to tell you today on her behalf, on our behalf, that until this law is passed in Australia, we will not be getting married.”

Then, when a seemingly shocked Kochie responded with “That’s putting your money where your mouth is…”, Joshua quickly retorted: “Why should we? Why is it fair? Why are we any more important than anybody else? It’s not right and something’s got to be done about it.”

The smitten couple, who met on the set of TV series Galavant in September last year and announced their engagement in February, have been crusading for the legalisation of same-sex marriage in Australia through the father-of-one’s campaign Say ‘I Do’ Down Under.
