Same Sex Marriage Has Passed The Final Vote!

YOU BEAUTY The Australian Parliament Has Voted Yes To Marriage Equality

The new attorney-general's department "notice of intended marriage" form replaces the old one on Saturday, with the first same-sex weddings expected to follow a month later on January 9.

Most gay rights advocates believed the government should have allowed marriages years ago and saw various ideas for a public survey as a delaying tactic.

Australia's House of Representatives has voted overwhelmingly in favour of same-sex marriage, passing a historic Bill yesterday that drew broad cross-party support.

The Senate had passed the same legislation last week.

The law is likely to take effect in around a month, after royal assent and other formalities are completed, according to The Washington Times.

"What a day for love, for equality, for respect!"

Tim Wilson, a Liberal MP who proposed to his long-term partner Ryan during a speech in parliament earlier this week, said "there is no day that I am more proud to be Australian than today".

"It means that we've created an Australia that is more equitable, it's more fair, it's more just", he added.

Mr Turnbull described the enacting of the laws as a "big Australian hug for all same-sex couples".

One of the rejected amendments would have ensured Australians could speak freely about their traditional views of marriage without fear of legal action. "When people came together and made the case for change, and the beauty of this outcome is that everybody owns the result".

"I think we got to marriage equality in spite of Malcolm Turnbull, not because of him", he told reporters in Sydney.

"The Australian people were promised that their freedom of speech, freedom of religion and parental rights would be protected in any same-sex marriage legislation, and this has not happened", he said.

The new laws cleared parliament unchanged on Thursday evening after a marathon debate lasting 56 hours and despite a push from conservative MPs for additional religious protections.
