Australia's honorary first lady, Kylie Minogue and her British fiancé Joshua Sasse has said she and he will not get married until same-sex marriage becomes fully and totally legal in Australia.

The Australian singer and actress, 48, and English actor Joshua Sasse, 28, announced their engagement in February of this year. They both have been continuously active and vocal supporters of the "Say I Do Down Under" marriage equality campaign going on at present.

Sasse is as equally involved in the campaign as Minogue is, as he helped launch the "yes" campaign at the weekend, stating that the pair would like a wedding in Melbourne, "but we will not get married until this law has passed in Australia".

"When I found out that gay marriage was illegal in Australia, I was astounded," he told Australian TV show, Sunrise.

"I simply can't fathom on any level, whether it's moral or religious or anything, that I have the right to get married and to marry the person that I love and that somebody else doesn't because of their sexual orientation."

The government has proposed holding a public vote on same-sex marriage in February 2017.
