Legally defining language

I remember my Austrlaian friends gleefully telling me how English is better than say German, becuase in German you need a act in parliament to change the spelling. But it seems that English is not as felxible as they would want to believe.
Though of course you can change something by common usage. So we should all call marriage between gay people marriage and the law and other things, being the stodgy followers that they are will eventually catch up.
