Who knows if I will ever meet someone to marry. I don’t say that out of a “woe is me” feeling, more of a “who can ever know” meaning. What I do know is that Australia is a lagging behind a lot of the developed world now. Next year we have a federal election and for the first time we will have a Prime Minister and an Opposition Leader who both support marriage equality. The PM has stuck by his predecessor’s promise to have a national vote on the topic shortly after the election and if he manages the whole thing properly, it should get through.
The U.S. has had nationwide marriage equality for a several months now and this video hit the internet last week celebrating 50 couples in 50 states being married. We only have 6 states and 2 territories, so our video will be smaller if this ever happen.
