Will marriage for lesbian and gay couples affect children?

Will marriage for lesbian and gay couples affect children?

No child will be negatively affected because of marriage equality in Australia. In fact, some children will benefit because finally their parents will be able to marry.

A:

LGBTI people have been successfully parenting in Australia for many years. Marriage equality will not change this but will offer stronger protection to all families.

We can look to countries like the US, UK, Ireland and New Zealand where same-sex marriage is already legal. The benefits to millions of people and their families in these countries have been real, while the fears have not been realised. It’s meant more families are included, strengthened and recognised.
