According to Sasse, the couple has no plans to get married until gay marriage is legalised down under.
On Sunrise, the English actor revealed his commitment to the LGBT marriage cause.
“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,” he said.
“That is not what equality is about.”
Sasse expressed his regret that Australia is the last country of its variety to allow gay marriage.

“Australia is the last English-speaking part of the western world that is yet to catch up. It is just a complete shock,” he said.
“After the 25 of June last year, when America passed marriage equality, people have completely gotten behind it. It has not affected society.
“I think it’s important to see how other nations have gone through the process. What it has promoted with love and equality. Isn’t that enough?”

In order to fight for change, Minogue and Sasse have joined the “Say I Do Down Under” campaign. They’re not alone in their support, with other Hollywood heavyweights such as Dolly Parton, TV host Kelly Ripa, and our own Margot Robbie throwing their weight behind the cause.
Until same-sex marriage legalisation is passed in Australia, Sasse determinately states the couple will not marry, despite their engaged status.
“There are chances of a Melbourne wedding … (but) we will not get married until this law has passed in Australia,” he said.
Come on, Australia. It’s time.
