For Love and Commitment

All australians should have the same opportunities for love, commitment and happiness.

Marriage is about the commitment shared between two people who love each other and want a secure future together. Lesbian and gay Australians should have the same opportunities for love, commitment and happiness as everyone else.

Celebrating all couples’ love and commitment, and affirming their equality under the law will bring joy, dignity, security, and connectedness to thousands of Australians and their families.

Marriage is something Australians value and respect. It’s the ultimate commitment to another person, and to building a secure life together into the future.

All of society benefits from giving every Australian the opportunity to marry the person they love.  We should all have the same opportunity under the law to commit to another person.

For parents, many realise we may have lesbian or gay children or grandchildren now or in the future. We want every child to grow up in a country where she or he can have the same aspirations for love, commitment and happiness.

Marriage touches every vital area of life: creating kin, building a life together, celebrating and reinforcing love and commitment, caring for one another, retirement, and inheritance. Bringing the freedom to marry to all Australians will make a profound difference in people’s lives, happiness, and well-being.
