This is really just about whether all Australians should be able to marry the person they love — nothing else can or will be changed by changing the Marriage Act. And we can now look to over 22 other countries that already have marriage equality: including the UK, New Zealand, Ireland and the US. The sky hasn’t fallen in!
But it has made a lot of people very happy — including the father who can now walk his lesbian daughter down the aisle, and the grandmother who can dance with her gay grandson at his wedding.
Questions you can ask: How do you think your life would be different if all loving, committed couples could get married? Do you think it would be a good thing for Australians to be able to celebrate all of our friends’ love and commitment equally?
