Will people who have an X marker on their passports, or who identify as non-binary, genderqueer, or otherwise outside of the male/female binary be allowed to marry if there is a YES vote?

Will people who have an X marker on their passports, or who identify as non-binary, genderqueer, or otherwise outside of the male/female binary be allowed to marry if there is a YES vote?

A:

If there is a YES vote, it is likely that the Marriage Act would be amended to replace the words “a man and a woman” with the words “two people”. This would mean any two people of any gender or sex could marry. However, we won't know until we see the final bill.
